The block diagram suggests that the KT266A supports ATA-100 itself, as opposed to the A7V's integrated Promise controller. Am I right? Does anyone know if this chipset is supported in the stock Linux 2.4.17 (and if there's any secret config to twiddle)?

This came up because I'm looking to replace my A7V mobo. I want something with ATA-100 and 266 MHz FSB. DDR-only preferred; historically, mixing types of memory modules results in abysmal performance. Any suggestions for a board in the $100-150 price range?

I've seen on a Linux site where they've tested the Soyo Dragon+ that this motherboard was fully compatible with Linux. I cannot remember the name of the site where I seen that.
