Some additionals:
I installed debian etch on the same machine (with AMDs 64X2 4200+)
successfully with some preparations:
- ensure to have updated your BIOS (was a little bit tricky without
floppy disk and without non-windows compliant bootable medium ;-)
- enable Uli-RAID-Controller in BIOS if you use SATA even if you dont
plan to use RAID, otherwise you dont have access to /dev/sdx
- if you dont disabled acpi in BIOS choose "acpi=off noapic" as grub
- use latest alsa release (I used alsa-driver-1.0.11rc3) to enable
integrated sound (add snd-hda-intel position_fix=1 to /etc/modules)
