Check the intel website, they have specific up-to-date information on configuring Linux for their cards/chipsets. I was surprised how well Intel and IBM seem to be supporting the Linux community. I mean, IBM makes a big deal saying how it's the future, meanwhile you go to the order page and there is no option for getting a PC loaded with Linux--there is no Windows delete option.
