This is a socket LGA775 motherboard with a 64 bit Pentium.
The only version of Linux that ran with X was Suse 10.0,
but an automatic update killed it.
Opensuse 10.1 beta 6 loads correctly (if quadratically),
but the display breaks up and the computer locks up
when the configured X server starts.
Perhaps x64 Linux is AMD only.
