I found an internet blurb regarding the P5B Deluxe not working correctly on
the pre 10.2 builds... one said that they were hoping the official 10.2
release would correct the problems but weren't helpful. Unfortunately, it was
a chat list like this one and who knows whether the tips were bogus or not...
and the bottom line was to hold off on buying the ASUS board (versus an
official Intel board) because the ASUS boards are notorious for having a
mix-mash of components that may not be linux friendly--- whereas the Intel
boards are generally more faithfully tested... again, could be crap.

heh... me neither... but I'll tell you, .... I have had five(5) count them
machines that would not boot, or would not install, until ACPI was turned
off... and I can't tell you why... and nobody else can tell ME why?? But I
agree, there has to be a reason, right?
