I have a HP DL785 - 8 socket quad core amd with 64G of memory, installed
of a debian installer snapshot. I have it attached to a HP EVA8000  (8T) + HP
XP (4T) , both with multipath tool managing the san.  It boot of local disk
smart arrays.

I had some issue with their psp pack (support pack), but that was
because they were waiting for debian 5 to release.
