I have just purchased this board for LMCE for the same reason, known compatiability lets not forget their dirt cheap..
I was thinking of just using a usb ether controler for the internet, as I doubt anything really needs to be that quick, the other idea I am currently toying with is using LMCE for DHCP only, ie no routing and use one of my dedicated routers (microtik, linksys wrt)
another reason I like the board is there is 2 onboard serial ports (requires header cables) for blasters etc.
very nice once i figured it all out
Of Worthy note, the instruction book for the m/b states you need to turn off high definition audio if your not using a "high def audio header" for the front audio connector, this is not true, disabling that option in the BIOS turns off the sound card and crashes the AV wizard.
