Honestly your best bet is to identify the hardware that may have issues
(newer ethernet, raid cards, hba's etc..). Figure out what chipset they use
and google for it or look at RH release notes and kernel source to see if
the driver is included. The driver source code usually has a pretty good
list of supported chipsets and pci ids.
