I installed Slackware 9.1 and 10 on this board, with no problems.
Booting Knoppix 3.3 and 3.4 works, if you add the noapic
command to the kernel
( Example: #: Linux24 noapic )
Only problems that IŽve had, was when I tryed to install any Linux dstribution on hdc ( master HD on second IDE )
No gain, just pain
In some forum I have read that it is a general problem with this board, when you have 2 drives on the second IDE.
A BIOS Update should fix this, but I did not try to update so far, so I donŽt know if it works.
Windows XP also gave me problems with the second HD ( Master HD on second IDE )
It is a 160 GB HD and windows only showed 142 GB available. There also were problems partitioning the harddrive with Windows.
There where no problems with partitioning the HD with cfdisk, but I could not install Slackware, Debian, Suse,
For now, I removed my Master HD ( first HD on first IDE ), which was a 80 GB HD and use the 160 GB HD as the only HD now ( Master on first IDE )
This works fine, but I have a 80 GB real fast HD wasted, laying around, useless.....
I guess IŽll get myself a new ASUS Board
