[K12OSN] Woe is me: Onboard SCSI/RAID Controller

My school bought its first server over the holidays.
The advice was to get one that did *not* have an onboard scsi/raid.

Our brand new server, however, is an Acer Altos G700 with an onboard 
Adaptec AIC-7902W SCSI/RAID controller...

It comes with an A4 sheet saying "... AIC-7902W... is not supported 
under Red Hat 8.0"

It's still "in the box" and I was hoping to set up K12LTSP on our new 
server over the weekend. (I've been playing quite successfully with K12 
on an old PIII and on my Dell laptop too.)

What's the advice/general opinion?
Am I saying goodbye to K12ltsp and hello to windows 2003?



I'm a web designer turned teacher, so please forgive me when I say that 
I have no idea what a SCSI/RAID controller is.
