I just read on Red Hats site that motherboards with USB aren't fully supported.

Is this true? I thought the newest lernel supported USB?

I want to get a motherboard with USB so that I can have an external CD-R or other peripherals. Should I abandon buying a USB motherboard?

There's nothing wrong with getting an MB with USB support. USB may not be supported now, but it likely will be before too much longer. Obviously if you don't have the USB capability in the H/W, you won't be able to any forthcoming USB support.

USB will be supported in 2.4.  Redhat and the other mainstream distributions use the 2.2 kernel tree untill 2.4 comes out.

Well USB was supported in some of the versions of 2.2 kernel and will be supported in kernel 2.4 and could be supported by kernel 2.3.50
