Shawn, just make sure it is a 64bit mobo that can handle large memory
natively, otherwise you go into the grey area of "faking" the big memory.
i hear that some people had great success with it, my experience was
uniformly dismal on rh7.2 throug 9.0 and fedora 1 and 2 - the system is
slower and experiences random lockups. ymmv. julius
