From reading this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...5&pagenumber=1
it sure seems easier than with the via400kt chipset. I don't have any personal experience with it (not yet since my newly bought PC based on nforce2+ATI-RAD-9600PRO still hasn't arrived), but I think the bottom line is that it works well as long as you are willing to spend some time on it.
