We have been using Centos since verison 3.x and have found it works well 
in the server room.  Has recognized every piece of hardware including 
some raid arrays correctly.  Also recently installed it on an Intel S5000 
based current generation Xeon based M/B. SATA based mirroring.  Broke the 
mirror and rebuilt as a test.

Testing in this latter config continues, but it will be our OS for the 
next couple of years.  Will be buying the RAID 5 key from Intel for the 
next set of testing.
