I run FC3 x86_64. It works fine except when it comes to Jand Flash.
You'll have to dump the 64bit Firefox and load the 32bit version since
there is no 64bit Flash or Java Plugin. Of course not all RPMs are
x86_64 so you'll probably roll your own more than you would with i386

Sees my 4 SATA drives just fine, although I do boot to an IDE drive.

Sorry no advice except that I have an ABit KV*-MAX3 and it sees my
integrated audio, not sure which chipset

My KV8 has a Maravell based gbit nic too, works fine.

Just load it run it,  and see what happens.  I'm impressed with the
progress in the latest FC.
