First you should know what are the onboard audio and onboard lan adapter.
Then you can download respective drivers for linux.
At last, follow the driver installation recommendation, you will find your audio and network card can function normally in linux also. It is not difficult ,dont fear it.

didja try the asus site and look for linux drivers?

I have an a7n8x-e deluxe and i used the forcedeth module for the built in NIC
My slackware 10 found that one ok.

You could try a.... modprobe forcedeth
the settings are in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf for the ip n stuff

or you can go to the nvidia site to get the chipset drivers for the NIC and sound.

The realtek site had release this audio driver for linux. And the driver contains the sample modules configuration file. Follow the sample file , you can edit your modules easily.
