I bought a Dell 1400SC server I've put Debian on.  It is true that
they only preload Redhat, but everything works under Debian, except
for their server monitoring agent.  That fails because their kernel
modules for the monitoring hardware are too old... it won't work under
current RH kernals either.

So, if you want a Debian preload, they aren't good for you, but I like it.
