Hi Joel,

Not sure if mine's the best, but I use the Asus a8v with an amd 3000+ on 
netbsd. The onboard nic (gbit) only works with netbsd-current, not with 
2.0-release. Furthermore, the supplied wlan card (if you have the deluxe 
edition) remains undetected. It has two IDE controllers, promise and 
via, of which only via is supported.



Er was eens een boer. Hij had 3 koeien, 2 witte en 1 witte.
Maar dat gaf niet, want de koe gaf ook niet.  De boer vond een
horloge, de koe vond van niet.  Ra-ra kameel politiepet.
