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
did too.

CentOS kernels should be a 1:1 rebuild of RHEL, so you should
see all hardware supported.

Nice.  It's been years since I've had to support leading edge
EDA tools (I left the semiconductor industry over 3 years

If they are certified against RHEL3, then they should not.

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