Hello                                                                      
I am buying a Quantex QP6/200Pro-3 and I want linux to be my primary OS. I  
would appreciate if someone can fill me in on the linux drivers(if any)    
available for the following cards. BTW I do not have access to COL or COLH  

1) EIDE Mode 4 Hard drive                                                  
2) Matrox MGA Mellinium 3D w/4MB WRAM                                      
3) MAG 17" Digital Monitor                                                  
4) 33.6 Kbps modem w/ Rockwell chip set.                                    
5) Toshiba 12X 125 ms EIDE CD-ROM Drive                                    
6) Ensoniq VIVO-90 32 bit Wavetable synthesizer                            

I would also welcome comments about other people's experience with Quantex  
as system.

No problem.  Support Built in.

You may need to upgrade to Xfree86 version 3.2 after installation.  (Most
distributions are still installing 3.1.2.)  Xfree86 3.2 reportedly supports the
matrox Millinium line pretty well, although the software is fairly new and
all features might not be completely supported.  With each new release,
however, support for this card should become more and more complete.  You
might also look into commercial X servers.

Quote:> 3) MAG 17" Digital Monitor

No problem,

Quote:> 4) 33.6 Kbps modem w/ Rockwell chip set.

Rockwell makes two classes of chipset.  A generic full-blown modem chipset,
and one called RPI, (for Rockwell Proprietary Interface).  The RPI chipset
requires software drivers to do the error correction and compression and will
work only in a crippled fashion under Linux.  However, the full-blown modem
chipset from Rockwell will work quite well.

Quote:> 5) Toshiba 12X 125 ms EIDE CD-ROM Drive

No problem.

Quote:> 6) Ensoniq VIVO-90 32 bit Wavetable synthesizer

I'm not sure about this one...  I see that the Ensoniq SoundScape cards
are supported.  If this card is a superset of those, some of its features
will probably work and others won't.

Don't know about Quantex per-se.  Sounds like they are building machines
out of pretty good hardware tho...  Put in my $0.02 aobut the hardware
I knew about.  Hope it helped.

> 1) EIDE Mode 4 Hard drive

Should be auto-detected

Quote:> 2) Matrox MGA Mellinium 3D w/4MB WRAM

If memory serves, MetroX has a driver for this. With XFree86 you can
roll your own.

Quote:> 3) MAG 17" Digital Monitor

You'll have to roll your own on this.

Quote:> 4) 33.6 Kbps modem w/ Rockwell chip set.

What brand? Is it a WinModem?

Quote:> 5) Toshiba 12X 125 ms EIDE CD-ROM Drive

This should also be autodetected.

Quote:> 6) Ensoniq VIVO-90 32 bit Wavetable synthesizer

Don't know.
