Default Linux machine about to be built. Help

OK gang, I'm fixin to build a linux machine. I ordered teh stuff a while ago on new egg so hopefully it'll be here monday of next week. Here's the deal

I'll be using the AMD 2600+ with an Abit NF7-S2 motherboard. I also ordered a western digital SATA hdd for the box.

Is there anything special that I should know about SATA drives with linux?

Will I be able to just put all the stuff together, hook up the hdd, enable sata in the bios, boot up and pop the linux install cd in the drive and go from there?

Also, I'll be using a geforce 3 TI500 card. Is there anything special that I'll need to do in order to get the drivers up to date?

Thanks for any help guys
