I don't have any first hand experience, but many AMD barbones use
NVidia chipset mainboards, which can be problematic in the Ethernet
department. NVidia traditionally isn't very helpful in regard to
opening up specifications to open source developers, so I would avoid
those mainboards because this attitude just sucks.
