I don't know any motherboard manufacturer that provides chipset support for Linux -- and nVidia is the only chipset manufacturer I know to provide drivers for Linux. Sometimes it can prove a little tricky to find out if certain chipset is supported; sometimes supporting module can be a little surprising. For example I am using DEV_AMD74XX for provide DMA for nForce 4 ultra (although documentation itself states it also supports "nVidia nForce").
Finding a site that lists motherboards that are supported could be a real challenge. It's probably easier to query google for your chipset, "linux", "driver" or "module".
