Info about Chaintech

I was wandering if someone could tell me how chaintech rates when it comes
to mainboards. I've never used them before and was wandering about quality
and if they place nice with Linux. The one in question is a Chaintech 7NJL4
nForce2 400 Socket A ATX. If you can give me any info on quality or
compatibility with Linux, i would greatly appreciate it...Thanks../peter

I run Chaintech boards. Seem to both run well for GNU/Linux (Debian,
from a Knoppix install, then fully loaded with apt-get !).

I have 28 computers all running on different mainboards. Three are
Chaintech, and seem to compare well with the 9 Asus (dual CPU and single
CPU versions, AMD, and Intel versions). Over the past 4 years, have had
no problems with these brands, in continuous service, 24/7/365, either.

Regarding compatibility, the chipset is more important than the board
manufacturer. nforce2 is a good chipset for linux, except the onboard
LAN may be some trouble. But you can alway put in a standard PCI LAN
card for $15 or less.
