Haven't tried the Duron, but the Athlons seem to work fine.

No problems with the ASUS K7M that I've seen. I've got a few around
here running the K7M with Athlons, and the previously problematic
Adaptec AHA2940-U2W SCSI host adapters, along with the 3Com 3C905C
NICs that some folks have had problems with (owing to failing to
compile the -C driver, I think). So far, not a hiccup out of any of
them, in slink (Debian 2.1).
Speaking of which, has anyone got the released potato working with
the AHA2940 host adapter? I had some problems with it throwing I/O
timeout errors on disk read/write, right around the time potato first
went into frozen. I haven't tried it since, and don't really want to
take any machines down for an extended (costly) bugfinding mission.
It looks like there's a boot floppy image designed just for these
kinds of things (the 'idepci' image) but I'm kinda nervous now...
