alternative? The Giga-Byte GA-6BXDU
(http://us.giga-byte.com/products/ga6bxdu.htm). It is rock-solid for me
with dual P3/850 processors and 768MB of PC100 RAM. I've been using this
board for about 2 years and have never had a single complaint. I'm
currently running Red Hat 7.3 + kernel 2.4.19 on it.
