I'm not sure if this helps, but I've been working with FreeBSD on dell hardware of all kinds for many years and have not had a problem with a PERC controller. The easiest way to see is boot from the install CD and start a standard install.  It will error if it doesn't recognize any drives.

Subject: PERC 3/DC RAID controller

I have recently aquired a server which is a Dell PowerEdge 4600 with a
PERC 3/DC RAID controller. I was just about to start intalling FreeBSD
6.2, but noticed the hardware notes mentions practically every other
Dell RAID controller except this one! Does anyone know if it will work?

I have a horrible suspicion I will be back with plenty of questions in 
the coming weeks as I wrestle with this, my first ever server, and my 
first 'for real' use of FreeBSD! However I am reading all I can, 
especially the FreeBSD handbook.
