    VIA guide for Linux installation!!!

    VIA guide for Linux installation!!!

    VIA gave in and has posted a guide for Linux installation and driver settings for their hardware.

    You can find it here: http://www.viaarena.com/?PageID=60

    It addresses many issues and is a must for VIA users that need to set their hardware for top performance in Linux.
    You can find some documents in pdf format at my site:

    This *is the document for how to set your IDE controller to speeds higher than ATA33

    This is the document for how to measure your IDE performance.

    This *is the document for how to set up your USB controller.

    If you need any others please let me know.

    A great info and a MUST read for VIA users. Luckly, I don't have VIA boards but now that I don't see a need to worry about that part in the future...

    Thanks PB. I'm looking for the board ( if I get it cheap enough for my budget ) right now so it's very good to know.

    Lucky me, I've got a via chipset on this Linux box and from the looks of it, this thing wont help me. But at least VIA is taking a step in the right direction and helping Linux people out.
