I have several big Dell boxes which came pre-installed with RedHat
and were immediately wiped and replaced with Debian.
(I can find a list of model numbers when I'm back in the office next
week if that's useful)
But to be honest if the hardware is supported under RedHat that
demonstrates that the Kernel can recognise the hardware, unless
there are extra drivers with RedHat. If the hardware is recognised
(RAID controllers, SCSI tape devices, etc) you should be able to switch
from one distribution to another pretty much without effort.
(Assuming they run comparible numbered kernels).
