Linux Journal builds the
ultimate Linux box
starting with the ultimate AMD64 motherboard.
"One very important consideration in our choices was, will this work
with most Linux distributions "out of the box"? We installed Debian,
Ubuntu/Kubuntu, Fedora Core 5, SUSE 10 and Mandriva on our do-it-yourself
system. All of these distributions ran without any trouble and without the
need for any additional drivers or special driver management. (We did,
however, use the proprietary NVIDIA drivers, not out of necessity, but in
order to make use of the SLI features of the motherboards.) We also ran
Knoppix, MEPIS and Kanotix live CDs without problems.
