The 2950 works perfectly with Centos-4.4 (I've only ever used x86_64 though). 
The addon intel NIC might need the 4.4 kernel but the basic 2950 even works 
with 4.3.

As for chipset Dell uses the workstation flavour (5000X), here's some 
lspci -tv output:

-[0000:00]-+-00.0  Intel Corporation 5000X Chipset Memory Controller Hub
           +-1c.0-[0000:04-05]----00.0-[0000:05]----00.0  Broadcom Corporation 
NetXtreme II BCM5708 Gigabit Ethernet
           +-1e.0-[0000:10]----0d.0  ATI Technologies Inc ES1000
           \-1f.1  Intel Corporation 631xESB/632xESB IDE Controller
