Well you had to have gotten drivers from SOMEWHERE.... not supported by 
Dell is not really a problem for me, but the complete lack of drivers 
for RHAS was a problem.  You can't install without drivers.  If you got 
it to install, then you either got drivers from somewhere, or Suse8.1 
came with drivers, or you just weren't using the Perc4/Di.
