Intel D875PBZ or MSI 87P NEO-FIS2R
I'm thinking of buying a machine based on the Intel 875P chipset,
probably using either the Intel D875PBZ or MSI 87P NEO-FIS2R
motherboard, and I'd appreciate any advice as to whether/how the
hardware works with Debian (Woody with whatever changes are required
would be my favourite flavour).
Specifcally I'm concerned about:
- ECC memory support and 2 GB or more of memory.
- the serial ATA disks on both boards and the Promise 20378 controllers
on the MSI board with RAID 1.
- the gigabit ethernet (or even 100 :-).
Any pointers would be useful.
