What linux distributions are you using?
 
I'm currently running Fedora 6 (FC6) and it works fine but I'll be
moving to something a bit newer within the next
week or two and thought I'd ask what else is out there that can
support the Proliants out of the box like Fedora
can -- specifically handling the RAID filesystems properly. I suspect
the RHEL would but I can't afford to fork out
that sort of big $$ for it.

Are there other Linux distributions that work out of the box?

In my case I'm using a Proliant 6400r - quad Xeon 500Mhz

Phil -- I gather you're still around occasionally? I can almost hear
the crickets around here.. I am waiting to
take delivery of my 2nd storageworks enclosure I just nabbed off ebay
for $25.. Hopefully this one will make it
over here without being destroyed by UPS like the last one was (and
turned into parts afterwards)

Ok.. Just to pop in here again.. In doing further research, I think
I've decided to try out FreeBSD 7.x out.. Many people believe it has
much better security and fewer exploits than the Linux derivatives
do..
It also appears to offer some interesting speed bumps over the
typical 2.6 Linux kernel for TCP/IP use.. (among others).

From reviewing their docs for it, it should work with the SA5300 and
newer
array adapters as well using the cciss kernel driver.

I may be a Computer Geek, but I don't have time to show my workers how to type commands into a CLI or terminal window. Any OS for the Desktop needs to be intuitive in its functioning and cost-effective in the ledger. I need for my people to not have to worry about the OS doing it's job, so that they can do theirs.
