[Beowulf] ECC support on motherboards?

Given that one is doing very long computations, it seems obvious to me
that you're likely to get memory errors that alter your computations
if you only run long enough. ECC memory thus seems like a near
necessity these days.

However, I've been finding it increasingly difficult to figure out,
based on manufacturers blurbs, whether or not given motherboards
support ECC memory properly. Anyone have any tips on how to determine
it easily?
