I happen to have this same board, so it is fairly well tested. For the fc1
test1,you will need to boot with acpi=off (note the update kernel does not
require this, and the release kernel will not either.

Yes, NForce 3 is supported, is this the exact message you see?
NFORCE3: not 100%% native mode: will probe irqs later

Not an issue, this chipset is well suppported,there is an IO-apic issue
which is worked around in the errata, and was fixed in mainline 2.6.3
today.

The SATA controller is not supported under FC1 at this time. or FC2 yet.

The correct driver to load is r8169, and it should automatically configure
this on install. That driver is included in the kernel.

Unfortunately the SATA wont work for now, but everything else should be
fine on this board.
