RE: [vox-tech] building an AMD MP system



Pete,

I have had some problems with the Asus board:

http://usa.asus.com/products/mb/socketa/a7m266-d/overview.htm

I purchased one without the one board SCSI.  It proceeded to destroy two
different IDE drives, and then could not get a SCSI controller working.   I
ended up getting one with an integrated SCSI controller and it ran Red Hat
7.0 reasonably well.  For some reason it was always abit quirky.  I never
got all the bugs out.  One note, it needs registered RAM to run.

Dan

(Sorry I am not more descriptive, but I am working with one hand, the other
is in a cast.  If you would like more description, let me know.)
