Well, the i810 is a nice performance/price bother board, however, support
in linux isnt really good. RedHat 6.2, and Debian dont support it out of
the box, and you'll have to download the driver from Intel, and compile it
yourself, which is kinda trivial.. but if it bombs, it bombs. And then
you are generally on your own ;-). However, SuSE 6.4 and Caldera eD 2.4
work on it without a glitch. I use SuSE 6.4 on my system. I've been trying
to make this thing work with Xfree86 4.0.1 and 2.4test8, without
success. Well, so much for confusing you... in anycase, if you can RTFM,
i810 works.
