Huh, I haven't had any serious problems with neither the nForce2 chipset
my m/b is based on (including the nfe/nve Ethernet card) nor with the
nVidia FX 5200 video card. I guess that's because both are quite antique
by now. In general, the newer the stuff, the harder it might be to get
it to work. This might apply to nVidia more than to other stuff, but in
general it's just better to be able to check compatibility, e.g. using a
LiveCD on a friend's machine...
