Any hints / tips to get this working, and recommendations on the PCI card to get would be appreciated.
I agree with contacting RedHat support...they're paying for it, so call them.
On that note, you do realize that RHEL4 does NOT support SATA/eSATA, right?? You'll have to do some serious work to get it going, and your mileage may vary on the performance/problems you'll have.
Best advice I can offer, is tell your client to upgrade to the latest RedHat, if they want to use the latest hardware. Otherwise, they should stick with the 'legacy' stuff they've got.
