RE: New Debian net install on a SATA server?

I've installed a few boards with SATA. If you have turned on RAID, turn it
off. RAID changes the driver from IDE to SCSI -- and it requires a special
driver. That driver will not be part of the Linux set.

Nobody is going to be able to help you without more information.

Linux is hardware specific. Everything depends on the hardware you choose. 

I always attempt to choose hardware that works, so I don't have surprises.

According to the link you provided, the Ethernet is an integrated gigabit

The Serial ATA controller is not listed.

Sounds like you like surprises. :)
