I have a Sempron myself and it works as it should. Linux can read virtually any harddrive of any size actually. Besides, it's up to your bios to see and pass to the OS the correct harddrive size. A few older bios can't see any hd's bigger then 120 GB (but should still work fine, just won't "enable" more then 120), but flashing the bios with a newer one should fix the problem.
