Not really, have others had success with this method?

Are there any decent open source Linux software that work well with Dell servers that make it easy to catalog/inventory servers in a datacenter?

Essentially all we need to do is:

Take the server out of the box,
boot it via the network,
software collects all pertinent information about the server such as hardware, MAC addresses
inserts it into $some_database_somewhere that we can eventually use later
