Hi, I plan on buying an Athlon XP 2400+ system with this mobo for use with
Gentoo (both 1.2 and 1.4) but I have few questions if you would be so kind
to hear me.
- It comes with on board ethernet that can be used both as 1000/100 or
100/10. In the gentoo-sources-2.4.19-r10 kernel I found a driver Broadcom
tigon3 but it's for gigabit. I don't suppose this driver could be used for
100/10 cablemodem as well? If not is there any driver for it?
- I'd like to use a Maxtor 120GB/7200RPM/8MB cache on UDMA/133 with it, will
the UDMA/133 be auto detected and if not how do I enable it?
- I read something about serious problems with VIA boards and audio cd
ripping. Does this board have this problem too? I plan on getting a IDE
Plextor 48X24X48 with it.
Thanks a bunch!
