[mythtv-users] Motherboard Recommendation

My server died. I went out and got a used Asus A7N8X-X Nforce2
motherboard to match my existing AMD XP 2100+ processor and fired it
up with my 7 PATA disks and DVDROM. While it would POST (Power On
Self Test), as Fedora Core 5 loaded, I would get o/s panics (messy
crashes). Efforts to do a new install or o/s upgrade directly from
the CD also resulted in panics.
While the Asus motherboard is used and could be defective, could
anyone suggest a motherboard that they like that can support 8 PATA
devices (7 ATA100 disks (1x40GB, 6x200GB) and 1 DVDROM), 2xPromise
PCI IDE ATA100 controllers, an AMD XP 2100+, WinTV PVR 500, Nvidia
5200 video card, and PC2100 memory.
My old motherboard was an Epox EP-8K7A which worked fine right up
until it died.
Comments and thoughts are welcome.
