I'm looking to buy a new motherboard/cpu/memory combo, planning on an AMD
K6-2 400 (socket 7).  It's a headless server, so I don't need fancy video
or any sound.  AT-formfactor, PC100-compliant 168-pin SDRAM, 100 mhz buss,
2-3 each PCI/ISA slots, UDMA IDE, auto-detection of CPU voltage is a plus.  
Linux-friendly, of course.

Can anybody here recommend a quality motherboard?  I currently have a pair
of ABIT Socket 7 (P233) boards that I'm rather happy with, but the company
I bought them from no longer carries ABIT Socket 7 boards.  (Paragon Tech
in Mahattan, KS.  Pleased with service and price, even if I did have to
pay sales tax.  I want to know that I'm getting a
good brand, a decent server-oriented chip-set without frills, and
reasonable performance.  (Used to be that you could buy no-name
motherboards and not worry about it.) 

Are ASUS boards any good?

I'm not lost, I'm "locationally challenged".
