Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

Check my sig below. I have not had any problems except that the kernal or something doesn't support agpgart. Can't get a stable system when using NVIDIA drivers. Other than that it has ethernet, sound, UDMA133 hardware monitor for CPU etc and other stuff.
I don't recommend the SATA just yet. I have seen people who have had problems with it. Some can't get it to see the drives to install on to begin with. Might want to wait a bit. Hopefully next release for some. Mandrake 9.2????
Hope this helps. It is best to get advise on hardware before you buy. Learn from someboby else's mistake type of thing.
The only problem I found with a nforce chipset was the sound.It works but the support from nvidia only exists for the soundstorm chipset.
BTW - dalek how is your FX5200 doing - my FX5600 (also chaintec) is about to die.Well it's been 3 month.I suppose that's ok.
crashmeister: It works and when it's working it really takes a load off my CPU. I run 1280x1024. It looks great. I ran 1600 for a while but it gives me a headache because everything is so small.
I would recommend the card as to it works fine. I'm not absolutely sure where the agpgart problem lies though. I think it's really a software issue. Either way, it ticks me off. I got everything setup so that I don't need to ever shutdown, short of power fail for a long time or hardware changes, and then this crash crap comes along.
Well. I hope they fix a driver or kernal patch or whatever. As stated earlier, if I wanted problems with crashing, I would have installed windoze.
I'm trying not to rant here. It's hard though!!!!!
