I wasn't sure either about their integrated sound/video memory, which has been a pain in the past for me at least.

if you are buying things in person,
bring along a knoppix cd. While it does not represent 100%
compatibility, it will be helpful. If it works with knoppix, you can be
more confident about buying it. (if you dont know what Knoppix is, its a
live boot cd based on debian--google for it)
