I found this so far.
It appears to work. Still looking for the drivers tho. I have never

Thanks for that link. The preview concluded "At the end of the day, the
Intel platform will run fine under Linux, but there's a few hiccups right

What I would do, find the latest live CD that you can find, Gentoo,
Knoppix or whatever, then boot it and run lspci -k. It's then as simple
as finding the options in the kernel and turning them on. The make
menuconfig has a search option in it. Just hit the "/" key and type in
the name of the driver. It will list where all the matches are.
Naturally you need to wait until you get this mobo and all to get the
CD. The later the better.
Another key thing, getting the latest kernel available when you
install. Most drivers may not be in the current ones or earlier ones.
That's the key thing I would guess. I would even get one that is
masked/keyworded if needed. Maybe check with this list as to what
people are getting from a certain version and running a rig similar to
