Well, I ended up with a bit different motherboard:
* Asus M3 socket mobo: M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3
* Chipset AMD 880G/SB850
* VGA Integrated ATI Radeon™ HD 4250 GPU
* Storage SB850 Chipset. 5 xSATA 6.0 Gb/s ports
* LAN Realtek® 8111E Gigabit LAN controller featuring AI NET2
* IEEE 1394 VIA® VT6330 controller supports 2 x 1394a port(s)
* USB 12 USB 2.0/1.1 ports, 2 x USB 3.0

I installed Debian using Netinstall from a USB stick. All went well,
including my first foray into LVM.

The only hiccup was the problem with the trunk kernel (a probelm I had
also reported several weeks ago on my older machine) and grub-pc. Since
I was familiar with the former, I knew what was wrong. Changing all
devices to their UUIDs in /etc/fstab and removing the trunk kernel (by
booting in to an alternate one) solved that problem, followed by
installing grub-pc from unstable (apparently grub-pc has a serious bug
going on in testing?).

Right now I am using bigmem kernel: 2.6.32-5-686-bigmem

LAN, vga and audio are all working. In fact, other than the problem with
the trunk kernel and grub-pc, there was absolutely no problem at all
during or after the installation.

My whole hearted congratulations to the involved Devs! Really, quite
impressive. My respect for them increased many folds when I later
installed Windows in the first partition. Graphics were crippled, LAN
was not working, audio was crippled.

Debian rocks! Keep up the good works, folks!
