Installing Linux and the K8N-DL motherboard

Hello -

Does anyone out there have any experience or tips on installing linux onto an ASUS K8N-DL motherboard? I've tried SUSE 10.1 and RHEL 4 rel4, I've tried both on-board SATA controllers, I've tried with and without hardware RAID, but all with no luck. The system has dual AMD Opteron processors, and 4GB of RAM. I've found a number of sites that claim this can work, although linux is not officially supported by ASUS on this mobo.

When HW RAID is off, the install sees all 4 drives, and allows me to partition them and finish the install, but upon reboot it will not recognize a valid system drive and won't boot. Any suggestions would be very welcome!

thanks,
Dan
