Default Linux on P5Q-Pro anyone?

Just went from 32 bit ubuntu to 64 bit on this board and am having trouble finding drivers for it that will work.
Anyone have this OS on this mobo?
Can you help a brother out with some drivers?

Which drivers are you looking for specifically? I installed Arch Linux(32 bit) on my P5Q-E and I didn't need to install any drivers; but I didn't get a chance to test out all of the sound functions and everything so I guess there could have been some problems.

My System Specs


I installed Ubuntu 8.10 (I think? Latest release anyway) last week-end on my Pro, and it detected all hardware without any additionnal drivers: GPU, onboard sound, NIC.
