Despite the fact that I'm a Fedora fan I gotta say you have to be careful with Fedora and servers. The other day I had a chance to reinstall our older Siemens Primergy dual P3 with Adaptec 2100 and aacraid, but only the aacraid was recognized. I even tried to pass the "noprobe" option to the bootloader and later pick a driver, buth the "2100" was not there. So, if you have this card you should go for:

FC<6 should _not_ be used on a production server as they are not receiving security updates anymore. For that matter, no Fedora should be on a server as Fedora is not a stable OS. Don't get me wrong, I use Fedora at home, but not on a server.

I have to both agree and disagree with you there Dotan.
We use fedora core 2 on one of our production servers. Most of our packages were compiled by hand ourselves anyway and moving to another operating system would result in too much downtime that we just can't tolerate.
On the other hand, I happen to think fedora is a terrible system for a server since the only way we managed to make it tolerable was to compile hundreds of packages manually, certainly not the ideal situation.
