Gigabyte mobo with AMD Athalon 64 X2 3800+ cpu and 2GiB ram.
Should work perfectly, and did on FC4, but absolutely refuses to work
with that driver on FC5.
My scenario is a little different and older:
AMD Athlon 2.6GHz, 512 ram, asus a7n8x mb with nforce2 chipset (sound and forcedeth eth OK), msi nvidia fx5600 VTDR 128MB 8xAGP (onto 1024x768 LCD)

So all in all, the bits are older, and I guess developers have had more time to find solutions for the bits.

Perhaps searching / posting
would elicit more responses from people with similar hardware (x64 +PCIe) rather than on the test list ?

I see this with FC5t3 (not running FC5t3 at the moment and have not installed FC5 yet either, will do when I get some spare time):
