I've got the Abit KT7-RAID, and it works all right with Linux. But if you
want to use the Abit HotRod ATA100 controller, you will have to install
Gentus Linux - Because they haven't released the source or GPL'ed the
module. This isn't too bad though, since it's just RedHat with the name
RedHat replaced most places (Note: I said MOST places).
The problem you will have is to get a hold of it. You can't buy it AFAIK.
You can download it, but the server has been down for ages now (well over a
month.. Probably more like 2-3). They have also removed the links from
ABit's main site.. I don't know what the story is. Maybe they are
discontinuing the Gentus Linux. Maybe they have technical problems or maybe
they are releasing it open source.
I hope this answered some of your questions. And just to brighten up your
day - Yes these motherboards/CPU's can take some beating. I've had my Duron
800 at well over 1000MHz with the stock cooler and over 1100MHz with a more
professional one.. And it can even go further if you push it more. I prefer
to stay within the fairly safe limits though.
