Yes, it runs fairly well. I was using it but but recently I upgraded to early 
FC2 from Rawhide. I have been running 2.6.1 kernels for the most part so I am 
not sure how well the current 2.4 kernel works. I know some driver stuff has 
been back ported to the 2.4 kernel so it should work.

Athlon64 3200+
512MB RAM
Biostar K8VHA Via Chipset
Fedora Core 1.90
2.6.1 Kernel

You may have to install alsa to get sound working but I am unsure what chipset 
the M6807 uses. 

As for Video, under 64 Bit Linux, you won't be getting 3D support. The open 
source drivers don't support 3D for the 9600 and ATI has yet to release 64Bit 
drivers.
