That usually depends on what Linux Distro and version you will use. Modern Linux distros have very good hardware support and most things work out-of the box and are plug and play. Sometimes you may get into issues is you use onboard RAID, particularly if it is a fake-raid controller (which most onboard RAID controllers are). Normally you can set the board not to use RAID in such a situation and then use the much better software RAID in Linux. So that normally is no issue. Also, most Linux distro's come as liveCD's, so you can boot with such a CD and test the system before you need to install anything.
