If the hardware is really bad then a worst-case scanerio is to use a Red Hat 
kernel when running Debian.  A kernel is a kernel and with a bit of tweaking 
they'll all work.

I've had Debian running on Compaq servers, never had a problem with it.

I suggest sticking with Debian, and also considering other options for server 
vendors.  Dell doesn't give any attitude about which distribution to use, and 
I think that their servers are probably better than Compaq anyway.
