Hi List,
Thinking of buying it, so trying to do my homework, googling.
Found one link saying the mobo(NVIDIA 6100 nForce 405) is fully Linux 
conpatible but:
Several links indicated there is problems getting audio and NIC card 
working correctly. NIC is Marvel Yukon 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabyte Ethernet 
controller which google didn't hit.  Audio is Realtec HD audio also no 
info found.  Anyone with this system have any luck getting NIC and Audio 
to work?  Any comments/info appreciated.
Also found links about poor video quality for the onboard NVIDIA nForce 
405 video. Is there an updated Feisty driver that fixes the poor video?
Also found links about it being a hybred audio between Creative and some 
other sound card, don't remember what. Does anyone know if this issue 
has been resolved concerning the proper driver.  The onboard video is 
supposed to be 256MB shared memory but found links saying only 64 MB is 
My best hope is for someone running this system to tell me everything is 
working under Ubuntu so I can buy it tomorrow or Saturday at latest 
before the Best Buy sale expiress.  The price is right! However, any and 
all feedback is welcomed, good or bad.  It' time for an upgrade here; 
looking for significant speed improvements over my PIII, 450 Mhtz 
machine, circa 2000.
Thanks for your input,
