There have been some discussions on this list and others in general about 
Dell's version of RAID cards, and server support, mainly linux support.

Before I venture into having another vendor in the shop I want to know if there 
are any dos/don't's about 4-way Opteron offerings from Sun and HP.

Don't want to put the topic on a different tangent, but I would be interested 
in the discussion of AMD Vs. XEON in terms of actual products available today.
