Linux on Optiplex GX270? (OT)

I have two of these machines running Red Hat Linux 9 with the
latest errata kernel; installed using Kickstart from the base
distribution and then upgraded.

They seem to be working fine.  The integrated sound card isn't
supported with the current kernel (it is by the kernel in Rawhide,
but there seemed to be other problems there).  I've seen some
weird things with mice plugged into the monitors (seems like they
go to sleep and shut down the USB hubs and the machine isn't
picking up on the hub returning when the power comes back on).
Other than that, they seem to be working fine.

We're *not* using the Serial ATA capabilities, though, so I can't
speak to that.
