I have an nForce 3 mobo (ASUS SK8N, includes onboard ethernet) and a GeForce 6800 and my system runs like a charm. I'm using open source drivers for the motherboard (whatever Fedora Core 3 installs by default) and the closed-source graphics driver 6111. Maybe people with problems are running kernel 2.4? Kernel 2.6 was what finally got me to get rid of my windows partition...
