| hardware?

Thanks to all who replied! I've got pretty clear answers.

| an MSI with a Via K8T800 chipset. If you have other suggestions
| I'll be more than glad to hear them. Thanks!

Right now I'm having trouble finding places to buy MSI
motherboards here in Argentina. Right now I have only one option.
But it seems like I may be able to buy a Tyan S2850 or a
S2875 ... also heard good things about these ones.
Thanks again,
