I just tried with Windows (heaven forbid), and Windows horror aside, it
has detected all the PCI cards. So maybe the problem comes from the
Linux driver for that motherboard chipset, some bug that prevents it
from detecting PCI cards, too bad... :-(

I will exchange the board for what was my next/second choice then: an
Intel 865G based board. As far as I understand it, the Intel chipsets
are very well supported in Linux, as Intel plays very fair with the
Linux community. Let's see if that saves my bacon...

Vince, looking forward to better times, where hardware "just works" in
