 FreeBSD works on Dell server!
Author: JH Foo 
Date:   14-01-05 04:36

Just want to share with you guys that I've managed to install FreeBSD 5.3 without any special config on the Dell 750 1U server, SATA RAID controller was detected automatically. What a breeze!

Only thing about FreeBSD on Dell is that Dell does not release the RAID controller utility. Only the RPM is available.

...1 up from Fedora Core 3, which has some problems with the RAID controller (meaning installation is not even possible). FC 2 is ok though.
