Welcome to LQ. Yes, Linux and AMD play very well together. Many distros have specialized versions that are optimized for AMD, but I'm not aware of any distro that absolutely would _not_ run on AMD -- J.W.

To add to J.W.'s comment - AMDs will run all of the distros except for the ones for PPC. Cos they're macs and you want pc.
