Exclamation These Motherboards work well in Linux? (HELP ME NOW PLEASE)


Hello, I'm needing a MB for my micro AMD Atlhon 64 (Socket 754). I go to buy one of this MBs Asus K8N-E or MSI Neo3-F. Now, I'm needing which you recommend to me some of these two mothers that walks well in Linux, considering chipsets that they have.

Chipsets:
Motherboard1: Asus K8N-E (NVIDIAŽ nForce3 250GB Chipset)
Motherboard2: MSI Neo3-F (NVIDIAŽ nForce4-4X Chipset)

I've got HD S-ATA, Video Card AGP, and Memory 333.

Somebody know about this chipsets? What's your experience?, good or bad?

That's all, thank.

Haven't had much luck with NVidia chipsets. I personally prefer Via.
