NForce 2200 + 2050 with Linux?

I'm going to use a Foxconn NFPIK8AA-EKRS mainboard for a file server.

Both 1000Base-T ports and all eight SATA-II ports are attached to the NF2200/2050.

Is there reliable linux driver support for NF2200/2050 in the 2.6 kernel (important is network, SATA, Cool&Quiet and hardware monitoring (fans, temperature)?

Thanx for any hint

I havent found any. My linux system is pretty inoperable right now until they update the nforce drivers. if I revert to 2.6.11, the nforce drivers kind of work for ethernet but if I upgrade to 2.6.12 to add PCIe support so I can use the nvidia driver, which is flat out broken for my card right now ( Geforce 6200 ), then the nforce drivers are completely broken.

Sadly, there's no reliable x86 hardware on the market.

Either it's to fat and hot (P4) or bus bandwith is to weak (VIA).

I had hoped to use a AMD with Cool&Quiet, but once again, there is no reliable chipset available.

The NV4 Professional seemed to be a solution, but obviously Nvidia will never have a chance at business market if they are not even capable to provide linux drivers or specs for writing open source drivers. :thumbdwn:
