ABSOLUTELY. This server is Linux running on a 500 MHZ AMD processor. I love AMD processors. Never had a smoother running chip. Intel is great too, but lately I've been quite impressed with AMD and their prices vs. performance for mid-side servers. The main drawback with AMD processor at the moment is that they do not do multiprocessor (4, 8, 16, etc.) parallel processors as Intel does. If you are just running a single processor, AMD is just fine.
