Yes. We certify our system in CentOS 3. I must develop in this version.

I've tried with a pen drive, but the install program doesn't try to read
drivers from a usb drive. I've finally installed a floppy drive in the
Dell, but after suffering to find a working floppy disk, I've just
discovered that I don't really have the sata drivers for the E520. Can
anyone here help me to find the correct driver? I can even compile it if
you point me to the source.

I'm not the only one with this problem:
