Warning, I am a Linux newbie...

Okay, I am going to build a dedicated Linux box, no more of this dual boot
stuff (never could get it working right).  I am looking for a recommendation
for a good P4 motherboard with preferably 2 legacy ATA (right term?) headers,
on-board audio, and at least 3 usable legacy PCI slots.  PCIx for video card a
bonus.  Must play well with Linux!

intention:  to run 1 or 2 PCHDTV cards with a nVidia video card.  See for background.

I ask because I have a Asus P5AD2-E Deluxe that simply will not play nice with
Fedora Core 4, Debian, or the desired KnoppMyth ("cannot find filesystem"
error).  I mean, the FC4 and Knoppmyth install disks won't even get started, no
matter how much I mess with my hardware configuration and BIOS.

So I just want something that is known good and meets my params above.  I am
going to abandon SATA and disable it in the BIOS and use legacy connectors so
this will WORK RIGHT and be STABLE.
