NexGen 586 Motherboard

Hello all,
I have very recently come across a nexgen 586 motherboard with the Nx586fp processor. Other than that it is naked.
I have been searching the web to try and find out what typr of materials i would need to track down and obtain in order to rebuild this to a working machine.
I looking to find information on what i would need for a hd, disk drive(s), video card, power supply, sound card, mouse, keyboard, RAM, Case, etc....

I have found information on the type of ram that it will take, but that is about it.

If anyone has any experience with this make and model, could you give me some basic info about what kind of parts that i should pursue after. I also would like to know what type of linux distro would be the best out of the box for it once rebuilt.

Many thanks
