Straightforward, simple, reliable, has worked since 5.1-R? Via KT800 based
boards, or KT890. How to find those boards? Look for a V in the name :) A8V,
K8V, that kind of thing. And they're getting harder to find (and come to
think of it, might be socket 754 which you don't want).
Featureful, can be a total bitch to set up, working nicely in 6.0-R? nForce4
based boards will do, and they're _everywhere_. But do some searching first -
the Asus A8N-VM and variants will have you hex-editing BIOS code before it
will boot anything but Windows in a useful way.

Half the battle is getting reports for those boards that _do_ work. Not
everybody bothers to report them.
