We have several Dell 1655MC blades and while Fedora installs fine on 
them, we have had performance issues with the Dell PERC SCSI 
controllers.  Dell tech support was less than helpful with determining 
the problem.  The problems we have had have been with applications that 
are disk I/O intensive.  This is just my experience and doesn't mean 
that the problems weren't caused by user error.  Just thought I would 
pass it on.
