[ubuntu-us-mn] Building a Linux machine

Hi all,

I'm just curious if anyone has built their own  Ubuntu Linux machine and how
satisfied you were with the results?  When I first started using Ubuntu a
few years back, I did have some driver compatibility issues.  However, with
the most recent releases, I have no known issues.  But I'm wondering if
there is good driver support for these non-standard computers?

Admittedly, this is only the second computer that I've built myself (and the
first one was about 10 years ago).  I want to replace my aging home server
(about 9 years old - well past retirement age).  I'm looking at Biostar and
Gigabyte motherboards with an AMD Atholon X2 dual core processor.  I would
be relying on the Ethernet and Sound components built into the motherboard.

Any thoughts or suggestions are certainly appreciated.
