Easiest is to buy from a vendor that can test on your OS of choice,
there are lots of vendors out there that can do it.

Two such companies I have bought from that do this include
http://www.siliconmechanics.com/ (HQ in Seattle, WA area)
http://www.asaservers.com/ (HQ in San Fransisco, CA area)

Both specialize in Supermicro/Tyan-based systems(as to most other
"whitebox" vendors).
