On that URL it says:

'Availability:   Expected 03/28/2009

Please choose “Mainboard Test” to ensure that the board is free from
manufacturer’s defects, errors, etc. If “Mainboard Test” is selected,
please allow 1-2 full business days for completion before shipment

If you are a customer of logicsupply maybe you can get them to test
one of those boards, after they receive them,  with a CentOS Live CD,
to see if everything works properly.

Going back to the first days of January, when I thought the mainboard
in my Desktop box needed to be repaired or replaced, first I looked at
an MSI board in the store  where the motherboard repairman is. Then,
at a Biostar. I went to the web sites of both manufacturers. From
Biostar, I was able to download their manuals, etc., which I like a
lot. No experience with either company and not with that technology.
Dell put a FoxConn mainboard in this Dell Dimension and I noticed that
one of our other Dell Dimensions has a FoxConn PSU. Many people here
on this list can give you much better data, but do check out the web
sites of the mainboard OEMs you are interested in. Hopefully, some
people here will recommend HW for you.
