> Many people use amd to great effect.
AMD would be fine with me. But I read somewhere that some folks seemed
to be having audio problems on Linux systems that were running AMD.
Some of the ASUS motherboards had problems, perhaps? I don't remember.
I just want to make sure that the motherboard works with the soundcard
and the networking card and the video card and all the other little
cards we crave.

I don't need every single bell and whistle. It looks like the
Hammerfall DIGI9636 would work for me. Since it retails for $565, it
must be available elsewhere at a lower price. Right? Or maybe the
M-Audio route is the most cost effective?

looking for for a few more months yet.
I don't necessarily mind debugging, but I don't want that to be a huge
timesink. It doesn't sound like Linux is quite ready for USB audio.
Since USB is not a deal breaker for me, I can live with non-USB
> How many channels do you need?
Four would be nice. I'm easy!
