This is my NEWEST "If only I could afford it!!" motherboard. I'm an Asus advocate and wanted to see what others might have to say about this board and it's plusses & minuses for a Linux box. I drool over many things in my search for the "bigger & better" box and this is the one for the month. Thanks and if you know of any other manufacturer's boards that make YOU drool, i'd love to see them!
I have to agree Taz, ATA133/RAID support, USB 2.0 (like I've ever used that goop), and crack monkey quick 333Mhz DDR support are cool, real cool. But really, even though the specs are little lower, why have one when you can have two:
Thanks Aussie, good too know. I'd not taken that into account. Finegan, dang! Yeah i'd take that MPX board ANY day. Pretty nice for a dual system. Now! Is there a 333Mghz Dual board out yet to drool over? Crack Monkey quick! lol that busts me up!!!!
1) Yes, no current distro ships with a kernel that supports that RAID card. Support is included in 2.4.19, which is still at rc-1. This can be solved by compiling your own custom kernel, or waiting 2-3 months until a distro releases on 2.4.19.
2) Yes, Linux can read, but not write (reliably) an NTFS partition. Linux can read-write FAT 32 and FAT 16.
3) RH probably as their install will hand lead you through a raid configuration, and they will probably release first.
