My only recommendation is to avoid an "Onboard SCSI/RAID Controller" - this
advice was given to me last year when I was looking for a machine for our

Unfortunately this advice was not taken by the powers that be, and they bought
one with the "Onboard SCSI/RAID Controller" (in quotes because I still don't
understand what it is, I just know we have them and they're bad news!)
So they bought the wonderful new server, unfortunately it was up to 
little me to
get Fedora on it - BIG PROBLEMS - problems that I would not have had had they
bought the server that was recommended and requested! Long story slightly
shorter, we now have Fedora 1 on it and all is fine. I would love to 
update but
the latest is not compatible with our super dooper machine.
