I would think its current, but then I can never keep up with the

More than welcome, I couldn’t find the exact motherboard on any of the
linux HCL's, but I did find another motherboard with the same Broadcom
AC131 lan chip, and they said it all worked (in 2007), and the sound is
hda-intel so no problem with it under ALSA.

Looking again, it seems the 6100 and nouveau don’t get on very well, it
might be fixed, but you can use the nv or nVidia binary
driver depending and it should work fine, and if your planning on
putting lenny on it, nouveau isnt an option anyway :P
