PowerEdge 650 question ...

I have two PE 650's with the MegaRaid controller.  I want to upgrade to 
Cento 5.4 but of course the raid controler is no longer supported in 
that release.  I can stand to loose the raid controller if I can avoid 
the hassle of compiling a driver.

The question is: How much of a hassle will it be to just remove the 
controller and use the scsi controller on the motherboard ?  These 
machines only have two drives each.

These machines are destined to become DR boxes and I can use software 
raid to mirror.

TIA
