I was wondering if LAN,Modem,Sound, etc. chipsets that are integrated into the motherboard are supported under Linux.

If so, is the RealTek 8139C LAN chipset (which is integrated in motherboard) supported in Linux? Does anyone use it?

One more specific question. Does anyone know about a motherboard called PC-Chips 817LMR motherboard? Is it supported in Linux? Does anyone use it? It supports Athlon Thunderbird cpu's

rtl8139 is supported under linux since at least 2.2.13. Sound support depends on what hardware you've got. Lots of mobos use the Yamaha OPL, and SB hardware which work nice. Other stuff is hit and miss. I've never had a PC-Chips so I can't say. I still like ASUS and am sorta choked at ABIT these days.

Me like Intel i815 more and more these days. A custom heatsink and onboard lan and it's ready to go in a custom 1U fiber tray. Mmmmm... clusters. Gotta get the hardware watchdog timer going...
