The current fedora 6 kernel {not the install dvd} is close to the same
version as for fedora 7, so I would expect similar hardware support.

A sure way to check would be to download the rescue iso for either
release, write it to CD, and see if it boots OK. You might be able to
get someone who already has one to try it, or a retailer who has a demo
system with such a motherboard, to let you boot the fedora rescue cd

Other options are to check the hardware compatibility list at:
