I am seconding jan Depners reply.  Have been running FC4 for about 8 or 
so months , Itel based PIV 3ghz , 2 gig ram, delta 1010/LT
fricken fantastic  :-) using Kernel , 2.6.14-0.10.rrt.rhfc4.ccrma  
(probably not the latest /greatest).  My mother board is not THE best , 
butit is fairly new stock( or was ) and fc4 is very stable , I get great 
latency times (2.3Msec)- It handles my SATA  drives . I have no issues ( 
at least, none that I have have encountered.-yet. ) ardour - works 
great, rosegarden, jamin, all fine
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. might take a little tweaking, but not 
a huge amount.  I would go for it.
good luck
