New User wanting to try mandrake not sure on hardware
I was thinking about trying out mandrake linux 9.2 or 10. I'm not sure about the hardware I should use. I'am building a completely new system and I've checked with the supported hardware page for mandrake and I found many parts that arent really new.
Which chipset should I go with nforce,sis,via and what Brand of motherboard would be good for mandrake? Some motherboards get errors etc if trying to use linux. I was thinking of either getting a motherboard from Asus,DFI,Soyo or Abit. I was going to get a cheaper motherboard that wasn't name brand but I don't know how that would stand up for using linux.
I also have a hard drive a seagate barracuda 40 gig and the model number wasnt on the support hardware page for mandrake could this hard drive still work? What brand of sound cards work well with linux?
I need the help thanks.
