Yes, that would be really ideal to have. Also I suggest that people who install 
it to send a brief installation report to this list, so that people who search
the archives would find those reports useful.

I still don't have a motherboard, it is still too expensive (Rs 8000 =~ $200)
and I don't have money to buy it immediately. :-( I am waiting for the price
