I had lots of troubles from my G45 mobo when I was experimenting with
it a couple of months ago in Ubuntu, definitely drive stuff. I
ultimately gave up on using it for my primary FE since I didn't want
my WAF to plummet, I figured I would give it another go with Jaunty
and see if things were improved, but I have been too busy to try it
with the Jaunty alphas.
