Note that some AMD motherboards have problems with newer Linux distibutions -- and not just RH. I bought a K7VMM a while ago that runs fine with RH 7.3 but will not boot off RH 8.0 CDs, or off CDs of other distros made with similar kernels.

I got this one (1.33 GHz, 40 gig hd, 256M RAM) at a computer show for about $300 USD. No monitor (I have a KVM switch) but it came with a NIC, CD/DVD reader, keyboard, mouse and cheap speakers. The K7VMM also uses the VIA chip set.
