While not a motherboard, there is a linux third party flash tool for NEC DVD
This was nice since the latest firmware for the drive from the manufacturer
required windows xp to run their flash tool (and didn't work with their
earlier dos based tools). This will weigh heavily in favor of getting a
NEC drive when I buy another DVD burner.
