Which ASUS motherboard to get for FC6

I am still shopping for a motherboard that will support fedora core 6 on with an intel core 2 duo cpu. Preferably ASUS. Can someone suggest a model number from ASUS thats been proven to work under linux without problems? If you have one even better, maybe you can write about your experience with it. Any help would be nice.

IMHO, ASUS makes motherboard that are Windows dependent and they are lousy. Their documentation does not relate to the version of the motherboard and there is no way to get an update of the manual unless you call them. Try looking into Abit or Gigabyte motherboards.
