More details about Linux support would be interesting, especially for nvidia's SATA implementation.

I'm also curious if this chipset supports ECC memory, or does the Athlon64's onboard memory controller render chipset support unnecessary?

We were told that Nvidia would support most of the "popular" flavours of Linux. I can't remember the list off the top of my head, but there's a few obvious ones that I could guess at and that Nvidia would probably provide details on later.

I'm wondering myself in what form and how good this support will be.

im working on getting a list of supported distros- redhat, mandrake and BSD support were the ones that were rattled off to me last week. i couldnt get specific dates as to when the drivers will come out but im under the impression that it will be within a couple months. it isnt just raid/sata support that they are needing to support but also the hardware firewall and i think that's where the hold up is going to be.

ECC support should come from the Athlon64 itself and is chipset independant as far as i know. the 754s and the 939 chips do not support ECC whereas the FX and Opterons do.
