I have CentOS 5 running well on a Gigabyte GA-M59SLI-S5, and RHEL5
running on a GA-MA78G-DS3H.
These are both AMD motherboards. One issue I had with the RHEL5 board
was that the install did not setup the internal network adapter when I
did the install with no network connected. I re-installed to
re-configure the disk partitions after connecting the network and then
the install added the drivers for the internal interface.
