Dell and CentOS 4.8

I want to install CentOS 4.8 on the following Dell Servers:
R310, R410, R415, R510, R610 and R710

I found on the page of "Operating System Support Matrix for Dell PowerEdge Systems" [http://advisors.dell.com/advisorweb/iDriveMatrixView.aspx]
that they all do support "RED HAT ENTERPRISE LINUX 4" Update 8 x86 & Update 8 x86_64

So do they also support CentOS 4.8?

Thank you

Well, one might have to tell them one is using RHEL4 for [i]support[/i] but CentOS should be compatible with the hardware. ;-)

[b]torintino2[/b] - are you aware that CentOS-4 reaches [url=http://wiki.centos.org/FAQ/General#head-fe8a0be91ee3e7dea812e8694491e1dde5b75e6d]end of life Feb 29, 2012[/url] and may thus not be a good choice for new deployments?
