Anyone succesfully running a distro of linux using a gigabyte 965p s3? I tried ubuntu but apparentyl the ethernet controller is not supported and I get disconnected after a few minutes of being online with my WIRED connection. There is a post under my same username in the ubuntu forums if anyone knows how to solve this. I am looking to run a version of linux that supports mythtv and is install friendly (newbie to linux). Any suggestions from those with this board?

extremely new to linux and have been working with ubuntu. How would I go about trying out this driver? I assume it is not as simple as windows.

Well it depends, what version of Ubuntu did you try?

On ubuntu the sk98 driver may be available using apt-get / aptitude / or as a .dpkg or .deb or something

On RedHat / Fedora / CentOS and other RPM based distros you can probably find an sk98 RPM.
