Linux + nforce4 s939 boards
Hello people, I'm new here so this seems as good a place as any to say hi and ask a question. Hi.
Has anyone had any real-world experience of running a Linux distro on a new nforce4 based motherboard?
I'm thinking of building a system based on something like the Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9 NF4 Ultra which seems to have a shed load of features to carry me a little while into the future, but I wonder what the support on Linux is like for this? I'm not fussed which distro would work best (I currently have Debian 3.1, Mandriva & CentOS installed) - I'm willing to play around to see what works.
Specifically, if anyone has experience with the SATA + RAID support as well as the gigbit ethernet on the above board/chipset I'd really appreciate you insights. Thoughts on other simailar boards would be greatly appreciated too.
