I'm looking to build a new PC this summer, and want to build a multiprocessor system. I love AMD chips, so I want to use a dual-processor AMD base motherboard. Do any of you have experience with a particular brand or model? Any problems with linux on these? Which one do you suggest I buy?

I use a Tyan doolie board (tiger 100) as well - but not amd chips. Love the mobo though, and I plan on buying Tyan again when I build my next system - which will be SMP AMDs.

i want a dual xeon system...but as for amd i would go msi or tyan...msi if you want more overclocking options but both are very stable platforms and have received really good revues...i have never owned a tyan but have had several msi boards and were rock solid.
