I'm considering upgrading, and am trying to choose a modern motherboard
that nevertheless fully works with Centos5/RHEL5.

Though I'm partial to AMD processors, and would like to use one in my
new configuration, that's not a requirement, if the most appropriate
board happens to be intel-compatible. 

However, given the way ASUS is dumping LInux and crawling more firmly
into bed with the Beast, I'd prefer to avoid ASUS boards.

I see that NewEgg has some combo deals at reasonable prices, but I
can't tell which chipsets/boards are known to work with centos5 and
which aren't.

Just at random, here's one of their offerings, a Biostar board:
I've always understood Biostar boards to be cheap, not only in price,
but perhaps they're serviceable? 

I'm open to other suggestions, too.

Thanks in advance!
