No. The onboard NICs will probably not work with bf24 as they are afaik
based on the bcm57xx chipset which is supported starting from 2.4.19 -
Woody bf24 is 2.4.18. But this is not a real problem...
The ATARAID may or may not work - I have no idea which chipset they are
currently using. Can anyone shed some light on this?
As I'm currently building a website about running Debian on ProLiant
this information would be really appreciated...
> Will I need to compile my own kernel to do this?
You can, but won't have to - at least for the NIC part.
Just download the drivers from Broadcom and compile them against
2.4.18-bf24 and load them during setup (preload modules from floppy).
Or got to my website, grab the modules I've prepared for Woody:

Sarge will probably work out of the box. At least the last time I tried
I could install a DL140 without any problems...
