I hope this is the proper forum for this. I tried to place it where it seemed to make the most sense. I am wanting to install Fedora 8 server (based on Falko's "Perfect Server" install how to) on an AMD 690G/SB600 based motherboard (ASUS M2A-VM to be specific) with an Athlon 64 X2 4000+ CPU. Since this is going to be a server I'm not worried about the audio/video issues with running a GUI desktop; I am just wanting to build a fast, stable Linux box - likewise I'm not stuck on using the ASUS model as I have access to ones from Biostar, MSI, Foxconn and others. Has anyone had any experience building a Linux setup on one of the AMD 690 Chipset motherboards, and if so were there any issues getting it to recognize the hardware components on the motherboard? I'm not going to be using any of the RAID configurations, just a single 200Gb SATA-II HD, Parallel ATA DVD Drive, built in Video, Floppy Drive (why??) and 2Gb of DDR2-800 memory. Thanks! Ron P.S. Falko, you got any bits-of-wisdom, regardng this endeavor? You seem to be one of the most knowlegable people I have encountered when it comes to Linux - and I'm CERTAIN the other moderators are awsome as well!!!
