SubjectLinux & ECC memory

I just recently saw an advertisement for a Dell computer with a P6
motherboard & CPU that includes "64MB EDO RAM with ECC".

Are there in fact x86 motherboards that support ECC RAM? Can such a
motherboard provide better error recognition & recovery then a simple
"parity error"?

Most importantly, can (does) Linux take advantage of this?
