        Hi Guys, In a bit of a pickle.. Is anyone running the latest "Centos 5.9" 
        or earlier version with an Intel X79 based motherboard. I have a server 
        which needs the motherboard replacing asap and I have a spare "Sabertooth 
        X79". I have a machine with a "Sabertooth X79" motherboard to test on 
        which boots up fine on on "Centos 5.9 i386" image from the troubled 
        server. However the output from "lspci" (see below) seems far less 
        descriptive than you normally see in "Centos 5" or "Centos 6". I am just a 
        bit worried that this might imply lack of support. I do not need 
        audio/firewire.. but need the essential to work memory, sata etc. Also I 
        thought "i386" installs could not see more than 3 and a bit Gigs of ram? 
        The test machine has 32G and meminfo shows
        MemTotal:      3574676 kB
        MemFree:       3146556 kB

You need to run a PAE 32-bit kernel in order to see more than 3.1 GB.

I wouldn't be too concerned about the lspci output yet.
