Re: OT-motherboard

Many thanks to all who replied. I appreciate the input.

A little background to those who asked. I live in San Felipe on the Sea
of Cortez 120 miles south of Mexicali which is on the California Baja
California border. Getting computer parts is difficult. I had an Intel
32 bit computer which died on me. I also had a 64 bit Alpha which also
died shortly thereafter. I was given a Gateway 2000 by a friend with
only 128 Meg RAM. Gateway wants too much for 2 128 Meg DIMMS leaving me
still short of RAM. I had hoped to replace the motherboard with another
that would accept at least 1 Gig RAM and still use (for now) my old but
still usable boards/drives. For your information these are:

1. Hp C5110A SCSI scanner
2. Adaptec AHA-2940/2940W / AIC-7871
3. National Semiconductor Corporation DP83815 (MacPhyter) Ethernet
4. Ensoniq ES1371 [AudioPCI-97]
5. HP C1536A SCSI DAT drive
6. C1599A DDS-2 SCSI DAT drive
7. Matrox Graphics, Inc. MGA 2164W [Millennium II]
8. QUANTUM Fireball EL10.2A 10 Gig IDE
9. Maxtor 6Y120P0 120 Gig IDE
10.KB9910 IBM keyboard
11. Logitech MouseMan Serial Mouse port. Listed as PS/2 Logitech Mouse
13. LITE-ON LTR-24102B CD-R/RW (IDE)

Currently all are working fine. I would upgrade the Millennium II to a
G550 eventually.

I *would* like a 64 bit CPU but I don't think Linux is quite there yet
in support.

Thanks again for your input!
