So this board basically sucks. The NIC, video, and sound all don't work properly with Linux. There seems to be hacks for each of them, but I can't get them to work. At this point I wouldn't recommend this board for LMCE. I think I'm going to return it and try another, any suggestions? I need 3 PCI slots if there is only one onboard NIC, 2 if there is one. I have a nvidia 8500 that I can use if the system doesn't have an onboard nvidia video card.
