A small equivalent table would be nice.
I got a SIS mobo .. the equivalent is a intel 8x0
That was bit hard to find .
Redoing the documentation is really important.
Making easier to manage the info that's relevant.
Another datail really is what's going on with kernel 2.6
Get a bit of news about the implementation of ALSA as default
Even how to compile a kernel 2.6 with ALSA would be nice.
