Make sure you don't get the Mother Board I did... mine was an ATX footprint
but the important thing was that it had an AMDK6 and a SiliconG On Board Video...
the Desktop would crash intermittently...
I suggest going to Ubuntu's site... they have approved hardware combinations
some place... I would start there.

Subject: [linux-85] linux hardware question for all
Date: Tue, 21 Jul[masked]:48:24 -0400hi, i am trying to build my own mac mini size PC that runs well with linux, and i'd like any advice/feedback anyone can provide on that.
basically i want to know brands/models of motherboards, chassis, and other components that you think will work well with linux with these goals in mind:
thats it! i welcome all suggestions, ideas, feedback, war stories, whatever!
- must be super small, mac mini size mobo & chassis.
- plan to use ubuntu but open to other distros.
- suggestions w/ & w/o hard drives ok (these are to be clients in a LAN which can run LTSP if needed).
- must be pretty inexpensive (i can get small form factor PCs for US$150 which meet all my needs already but i prefer even smaller solution even if it costs a bit more).
- should have built in NIC, video, sound, usb ports.
- clients will run openoffice, firefox, perhaps a few other non taxing programs.
thanx in advance.
