Actually, yes.  I've got a pair of Proliant DL-140s running CentOS 3.4 
that are running the Proliant Support Pack.  I had to hack the contents 
of the /etc/redhat-release file to get it installed, but once done it 
works just great.  Each of the two boxes has an FC controller and it is 
attached to our SAN, we're running Oracle 10g in RAC mode.  I've also 
got some DL-320s running CentOS 3 and the PSP.

Hope that helps!
