Installing RHEL 4.0 on Dell Poweredge 2500 server

I need to install RHEL 4.0 on a Dell Poweredge 2500 server. neither Dell or Red Hat can confirm if there will be any issues with the installation. As I need to perform this at a customer site, I would like to know of any issues prior to perform the conversion.

Find out what PERC card it has. RHEL 4 has a 2.6 kernel and on the 2450 I had issues because of the PERC 2(si I think). You may have to use the legacy megaraid driver rather than the one the 2.6 kernel loads by default if you have anything earlier than a PERC 4.
