Also, given that it seems to use drivers that are already standard in the kernel for the serial interfaces, has anyone here had experience with this card? (good, bad, or otherwise?).

This isn't going to fit in any Dell 1U server that I know of - I had
trouble getting a simple dual-port FC card in a 1950 once...

I suspect you'd need to be looking at something closer to the 4U servers
Dell sells, where they have several full-length slots that don't require
risers.
