I am planning on dropping off my ageing Biostar P4M80-M4 (VIA chipset with VIA graphics) since its starting to show signs of failure: 1 memory slot went bust recently and i feel that the whole thing is barely holding itself up together.

Looked through some offers and have settled on the following processor + board combination:

AMD AthlonX2 5200 + Biostar GF8100 M2+SE

This board has an onboard GeForce 8100 graphics solution and uses a Realtek RTL8201CL - 10/100 PHY LAN port.

Will there be any problems with graphics and LAN drivers of this board in Linux? As in, will the GeForce 8100 (both 2D and 3D acceleration) and LAN port work right out of the box after installing Fedora, OpenSUSE, Kubuntu or Mandriva?

Thanks in advance!
