Howdy, I'm compiling a kernel for the new Core Duo 2 workstations my lab will be getting. They will use GA-965P-S3 motherboards, and while I'm completely aware of the JMicron PATA controller situation, things are less clear with the gigabit ethernet controller. Is there support in the kernel for this? If not, is it on the list for a future release?
Similarly, what kernel optimization set should I use (I'm assuming either Pentium M or IV) or will 2.6.18 have a Core option?
Thanks in advance and apologies for being such a noob.
