I haven't heard about this. A while ago, on another tread (ReiserFS
review I think) this was also mentioned, but no, if even such a limit
exists, it's not a OS limit.

The XP in Athlon proccessor, isn't the same as the XP in M$ Windoze. I
don't remember what this XP stands for, but I remember that it's
diffrent that Micro$oft one's. It will work fine with Debian.
I haev no ideaabout this motherboard thought, but generaly, motherboard
is not the problem, but if it does have some kind of weird inboard
soundcard or video card, those may cause problems. But AFAIK
MSI products are usually good.
