I'm using Fedora Core on a Tyan Thunder K8WE with two Opteron 270 CPUs.
AFAIR the Sun Fire uses the same AMD south-bridge as my Tyan board.
More-ever, I've got a number of HP 385 machines that use the exact
chipset configuration as the Sun machine, running FC and CentOS; in both
cases no stability issues what-so-ever.

In short, it should work out of the box.
