Question Distro Advice for HP ML330 G3


I am trying to get back into Linux after not touching it for several years. I have an HP ML330 G3 with a CSB-6 controller and no diskette drive to experiment with. I have been unsuccessful trying to install Mandriva 2010 or Fedora 12. A little research reveals that the problem is with the CSB-6 controller, but I've been unable to find a way to correct this with these particular versions. Can anyone recommend a distro I can download that will work with this hardware without recompiling?

Thanks!

Thanks for your suggestions. I tried CentOS 5.4, but going over the HCL it says it only supports the SCSI version of the ML330.

I am not familiar with the Linux Kernel configuration info you provided. Can you please point me to instructions about how to use that?

Opensuse has been my choice for enterprise level hardware.
