I have exactly that mother board in my machine at home, I only have
242's in my machine (all I could get at the time I bought it) and
1.5Gb of memory. I use the on board SiI3114 sata controller for most
of my disk. The machine runs fine for me, very stable now. I suggest
that you make sure the bios is reasonably up to date - early versions
of the bios had a bug with the MTRR setup which caused some grief if
you had a video card in the machine.
