Question Fujitsu Siemens SCALEO 600 RedHat 9 compatibility

I am using Linux in the last three years on my PIII 800Mhz Box.
I want to replace my RH 9.0 PIII 800 with a new machine,
I was looking to a SCALEO 600 that is made by :

GIGABYTE Mainboard (Custom Made for Siemens) GA-8SXT-FS
- PIV 2.66 HT/800Mhz FSB
- Intel i865PE Chipset
- Dual 333Mhz DDR Memory (2 x 256)
- ICH5 Integrated IDE Controller
- IDE Maxtor Disk 7200 rpm
- 6 USB 2.0 (from ICH5 controller)
- SATA interface is there but not used
- Sound made by a C-Media chip
- LAN made by a RealTek 8101L Chip

While I am not concerned by sound or LAN because I can steal them from my old machine, I have some concerns regarding ICH5 support in latest RH9 kernel (2.4.20-20.9) because the standard kernel (2.4.20-8) it's reported from Red Hat to support only ICH2/ICH4 chipsets.

Do you know if i865PE+ICH5 is supported (I mean a minimum of IDE controller/disk + USB 2.0 ports) out of box ?

I have bought such a Siemens Fujitsu Scaleo 600 a month ago. Everything works fine under SUSE Linux 9.1 except sound. Take care, the board apparently is not equipped with a c-media sound controlloer, but with an AC97 controller from SIS. Theoretically this should work too, but I did not succeed in getting it to run.
As said, the rest works perfect. It is a blazingly ast machine .....and extremely silent!!
