    I'm using a 8800gtx in my system, and have disabled the onboard video. I don't see why Linux wouldn't see the video controller though.

    It feels the same as the 32-bit version, maybe a bit faster. I didn't check what drivers are available before installing. I just bit the bullet and went for it. Yeah it's free. Updates are made...

    Well, I put a 20gb laptop drive in the machine to serve as the boot device, and installed FreeNAS. I'll be getting my storage drive today, and will try using the motherboard's onboard SATA2...

    I looked at NasLite, but since I don't have a floppy drive in the system, it's impossible to try out before putting money down on it. I like the webGUI they have for it, though. It looks like it's...

    I'm a little gunshy where this board is concerned (I don't know if you remember, but I absolutely could not get Linux to install on it). I guess I'm just anticipating that FreeBSD will be equally...

    Well, the motherboard only supports two SATA2 drives. If I want to add a 3rd/4th drive, I have to get the add-on controller ANYWAY, and then disable the onboard controller to avoid conflicts. On top...

    Home-built NAS Device

    I've recently developed the urge to want regular backups of all my systems (all running some Windows XP or Vista), and need a place to store the files. I've got enough hardware to serve as the basis...

    I recognize that some folks have success with these boards, but I tried TWO (thinking the first one may be a bit flaky somehow), and could not get any distro installed and/or bootable. I went...

    It installed without a hitch on my 8800GTX-equipped system. So far, that's leaps and bounds better than anything else.

    The nv driver in Fedora Core 6 doesn't have a problem with it. Ubutnu 6.10 was probrably too far along to change to the latest nv driver. On a similar note, there are no 8800-specific drivers for...

    Yeah, 6.06, and I only tried booting to the live CD to see what would happen - I haven't actually installed Linux yet.

    I doubt if 6.10 will fare much better.

    I see an "alternate install" in my...

    It took just 1 hr 45 minutes to tear the old system down, rebuild it ( with a new primary psu and a 8800GTX), and reinstall Win2K. I expect to attempt an install of Ubuntu 6.10 sometime Friday.

    Still no-go. Mandriva hung with 10 seonds remaining on the "Installation" phase. I just don't get it.
