    We just got our first PE 1900 here with dual 5050s.
It works out of the box with the following linux distributions (without
making any changes)
Fedora Core 4, 5 (3 doesnt see the disk controller)
Centos 4.4, 3.7
Redhat Enterprise 4
Debian works if you download the 2.6.16 version
I also wanted to note that On a poweredge 1800 with the Cerc 1.5 Sata
(its a windows benchmark) in HD tach it gives me  63.6MB/sec on the
burst speed where as on this 1900 which has the PERC 5 SAS controller
(both raid-1) it gives me nearly 200MB/sec.
