I'm preparing to have custom-build shop do PC to my specs (I will supply most of the components). I'm intending to have three dedicated hard disk drives (one for PC-BSD, one for Linux Mint, and one for XP Pro). Been told on other forum that its most important to pick components that are "known compatible with all three operating systems." With XP Pro, finding out exactly which CPUs, motherboards/chipsets, graphic cards, and sound cards it will work on was easy (only took couple hours of searching Google/Yahoo). With PC-BSD & Linux Mint, I have been at it for over two months, with little success. Can anyone advise how to go about finding this specific info, as I'm quickly getting frustrated!
