Here is an excellent website discussing Sata issues with linux. GB-Nics have been around for a while so I don't see much of problem with those. I would suggest finding a mother board with the compatiable chipsets. Tigerdirect usually has pretty good descriptions of what chipsets come with what motherboards. The website I posted suggest setting you sata drive to ATA mode and installing Linux that way, then rebuilding a newer kernel with supprt for your chipset. I don't know which kernel ships with FC but I do know it's relatively simple to upgrade, unlike in slackware.
