linux 64 on AMD 64 939 mobo MSI RS480M2-IL
I am planning for a Athlon 64 939 3000+ on a MSI RS480M2-IL( this mobo looks pretty impressive actually).... with 80GB SATA and ATI x600 PCI express graphics with 2x512 MB DDR400.
Has anyone tried FC3 64 or any other 64 bit distro's of linux on this config.
Any advice is appreciated....

I've had no trouble with my socket 754 AMD64 and 2 SATA harddrives in any Linux so far, 32-bit or 64-bit. If you haven't already, you're going to run into trouble with the ATI card, though. ATI just doesn't work in Linux 90% of the time, due to the fact that their drivers are piss-poor at best. Good luck though, I have heard of some people getting them working.
