My retailer cannot provide Elite motherboards, but we found an MSI one with a Intel chipset that could do instead. it has all the modern usual connectors and Is interesting for us with the presence of parrallel and serial ports which will allow the employment of some old printers and mice. I hope there will not be any major problems with it.but will it run under openSuSE 10.2 or shall we have to use 10.3 ?

The card type is MSI - 945 GCM5-f V2

it has Intel chipset 945 GC - ICH 7 for USB, SATA, bus master, IDE, PCI, ACPI2

I have used many MSI boards. I have found them to be very well engineered, and very Linux compatible. Never used that particular one, but in general MSI is a good choice.
