Video is no problem, NICs require a newer kernel, and the RAID is
hopeless (no open-source driver, no real raid (some kind of software
raid), and impossible to disable. There is a binary-only driver that
works with some redhat and suse kernels.
I wouldn't recommend this machine.

Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are,
by definition, not smart enough to debug it." - Brian W. Kernighan
