The RealTek LAN works fine on my box.  Audio from Realtek ALC883 also works,
but I would not know about ALC888.

Note that I'm on U.S. cable internet, so I'm not too worried about network

This is on Asus M2A-VM HDMI motherboard (AMD 690G chipset).  Everything works,
although ACPI appears to be inaccessible.
