Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

linux compatible motherboards

i searched everywhere - i hope- but found little.
Can anyone provide info about the following motherboards, or maybe for a "close relative of them"?
-MSI k8mm-ilsrb
-Asus k8s-ms
-MSI km4am-v: This one seems to work OK, but i'd like to confirm.

I've found that some of them have problem with graphics and sound, but i'd like to use it as server, so i don't care about sound. What graphics concern, can they work with generic/vesa driver? Are they stable also?

I used both a
-ASUS K7 M825G
and a
-ASUS P4B533
and they both worked fine with most distro's I tried.
BTW, virtually any motherboard will work with linux. The only poblems I have had is with Network and Video Cards.
