HP produces pretty good boxes and historically I have been able to get them working without any troubles. However I would say DL180 is a pretty non customizable box. The hardware works perfectly with FreeBSD 7.0. I didnt try it with 6.3, so cant comment on that.
However I would say DL380 is a better off. The main advantage of DL3xx boxes are there is a lot of room to play with add-on cards. Also not all the latest and greatest processors are available with DL1xx family of servers. Also make sure that you go for an external RAID controller like 3ware or Areca. I prefer Areca more :-D. The HP RAID controller cant take the beating I give to it.
