I have been running through a few Linux distros (Ubuntu 8.10, Crunchbang 8.10, AntiX, and Moblin) using a DX58SO motherboard, but I have yet to get the ethernet functioning with any of them.
So far, all I've done is updated bios to the May 7th, but still no luck. Prior to the installation of the new bios, the ethernet jack leds did not light up.
http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/dx58so/sb/CS-030351.htm says 8.10 Ubuntu supports it.
, maybe the ethernet jack is jacked up.
