I need a replacement motherboard for tired (capacitors) Soltek
SL-865PE-L. As a replacement I'm thinking of Asus P4P800 which are
commonly available and which uses the same memory etc. so the upgrade
would be limited to motherboard only.
However there are many versions of this board and I'm especially
wondering about the integrated lan chips. Marvell or 3Com gigabyte lan and
when the board was new there were some issues with them. Googling the
discussion groups don't seem to bring out any new theads about them. So either nobody is using them anymore or they just work. Anyone here using Asus P4P800 series motherboards? What version? How are integrated lan and audio working? Would you recommend that



This is my configuration:

mydebian:/usr/sbin# ./dmidecode --type baseboard
#dmidecode 2.9
SMBIOS 2.3 present.

Handle 0x0002, DMI type 2, 8 bytes
Base Board Information
       Manufacturer: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.
       Product Name: P4P800-E
       Version: Rev 1.xx
Handle 0x0036, DMI type 10, 6 bytes
On Board Device Information
       Type: Ethernet
       Status: Enabled
       Description:  Marvell 88E8001

I've run Etch, Lenny, and now Sid without any problems. Also Ubuntu runs flawlessly.
