    Thumbs up

    Biostar M7VIP works great with Linux!

    I just upgraded to the Biostar M7VIP motherboard. It has the KT333/VT8235 chipsets. You'll need kernel-2.4.20 to get full support for the vt8235 southbridge. If you use kernel-2.4.19 your ata100 or ata133 drives will run at ata33.

    Shuttle AK32 (kt266 / kt266a) works great.
    Tbred, Duron, Palomino and Thoroghbred are supported (upto 2600+ 133MHz FSB)

    (166Mhz bus not supported)

    Onboard sound(AC'97 provided by VIA 8233 southbridge) is supported in KDE/Gnome as of the ALSA driver release v. 0.9.0 r6 (see alsa-project.org for more info)


    I have tested with mandrake 8.2 and mandrake 9.0

    Linux friendly mainboards

    I've just spent 3 days trying to install Redhat 8.0 on an Asus A7N266-VM board. Grub doesn't work at all (0.92 release tested, apparently 0.93 fixes it), LILO gets the boot process started but then it hangs when checking modules.

    Would not even go through the install process using the onboard NVIDIA graphics, had to use an ATI 7000 l had.

    Very frustrating.

    I tried to install SuSE 8.0 but it also seemed to freeze during the boot after installing the 1st CD. I didn't attempt to fix it as l'd had enough rejection for a couple of days ;-(

    Is anyone coming up with a Matrix?

    Thumbs down Yup, hardware issues can be a pain....

    That's why I chose to get the ATI Radeon 7500...it was one of the cards that I could verify drivers for on all of my OS's before purchasing. I'm bringing the other stuff, USB, RAID, etc., up one at a time and about a week in between to ensure stability. So far I'z been lucky as it all seems to work. Usually LILO and GRUB will provide clue to what hardware is hanging system up. Have you tried doing a web-search (google, etc.) on LILO for the different boot options, codes, etc.??? It's been a while, but I recall all this info was available through search engines.

    Regards,

    Mongo

    The command is needed no matter the setting in bios for pnp otherwise M9 won't install. Have installed it both ways so guess it has no berring wether it is on or not in regards to the pnp setting. Still very, very new to Linux so not sure all the right settings in bios. But either way mandrake won't go in with out this command no matter what bios setting you choose on this system, not to my knowledge anyway.

    Linux friendly mainboards

    Installed Redhat 8.0 on an MSI KT4-VL KT400 with no problem.

    I did have to upgrade the bios to 1.7 first though, as the MB kept giving me warning alarms about temperature and CPU not connected (it was connected and working fine), also to avoid a hard disk corruption issue with one of the earlier bios releases.

    I will be installing same config on an Asus A7S333 later this week. Will update this list afterwards.

    Config:
    MSI KT400 KT4-VL.
    XP2100 Palomino CPU.
    thermaltake Volcao 7 CPU fan.
    Enermax 365FCA power supply
    2 x 256meg PC2100 RAM.
    maxtor X540 ata133 drive.
    ATI 7000 radeon 64 meg DDR.
    Antec server case.
