Mobo compatibility for a Linux build?

I am planning to build a dedicated box for a Red Hat class that I have coming up for summer session. Intended use is learning Linux and network configuration only, no gaming. Choosing a motherboard (mobo) is the only problem I am having, as there seems to be very limited support by the mobo manufacturers for Linux. I am leaning towards an Asus H87I-PLUS (w/i3 4330 cpu) for the moment. I am a noob to computing and have only tinkered with live Linux distros before. So far I have determined that drivers are the issue. Can anybody direct me as to how to make a decision on picking a mobo for this intended application? Thanks.

...Red Hat...Asus H87I-PLUS...

If you have a preference for ASUS mobos, you can take a look at their Linux Status Report For ASUS Desktop Motherboard
