I had almost the exact same configuration on a couple of
servers months ago. In fact, these systems are a major
mainstay of RHEL deployments. I ran RHEL3 U3 and U4 fine on
them, detected everything out-of-the-box. Even Fedora Core 3
CentOS kernels should be a 1:1 rebuild of RHEL, so you should
see all hardware supported.

EDA tools (I left the semiconductor industry over 3 years

But I have to say I have never run CentOS on my former DL585
systems, just RHEL3 (and FC a few times).
