Generally speaking this board should work with FC1 x86_64

SATA is Via chipset, I believe this works in the current kernel, hopefully
some users can correct on this, or I can test tonight.  many VIA boards
come with both Via SATA controller and Promise SATA controllers, and I dont
recall which one we actually support.

Yes, onboard LAN should work.

Onboard sound should require ALSA, so not out of the box with FC1, but
should with FC2

For 2D, both should be fine, for 3D, the 9700Pro has no drivers available.
ATI has not released any 64bit drivers yet, and I dont know when they will,
I think the comment they made today was along the lines of creating world
class software that focuses on released and shipping windows products. when
asked about 64bit drivers, and I do not expect to see a 64bit Linux driver
until they are working on the windows driver as well... Hopefully I am
wrong. Nvidia supports 64bit fairly well with their binary drivers.
