Fedora/RHAS Compatability



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

We are looking at purchasing several workstations for
testing/development use but we are not completely sure what to buy.  I
would like to get your opinions or compatibility issues with the
following machines (basic specs included)

Dell Optiplex GX280
	P4 530 3GHz with HT
	1GB DDR2 Non-ECC RAM
	128MB ATI Radeon X300 (DVI and VGA adapter for Dual Monitor)
	40GB SATA 7200RPM Hard Drive
	CDRW/DVD
	Broadcom GbNIC

- --or--

HP Compaq dc5000
	P4 3GHz with HT
	1GB DDR RAM
	Intel Extreme graphics2 (64MB equivalent)
	40GB PATA 100 7200RPM Hard Drive
	DVD-ROM (Linux)
	Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit NIC

My personal opinion is to get the HP, partially because it comes with
Mandrake 9.2, so I know it works with Linux.  The Dell comes with WXP.
Any opinions and/or known problems would be nice so that I have a good
base to recommend either one.
