I don't quite understand the CPU support situation for Core 2 chips.

I see multiple Core 2 chips listed in the wiki, but not all of them. I was wondering: how do the Core 2 Quads fit into this equation? How about Conroe? Do they just not work, or will they still work with a patch? I've seen multiple distros that claim to "just work" with a wide range of CPUs (i know, i know, distros "aren't recommended", but this is just a side project for me, nothing critical), will these help?
