Well, it should look just the same as using the Dell stuff, except
there might be a couple different device driver names and the escape
to BIOS during boot might be a different key. All else should be
just the same. If you got SCSI (or SAS) disk, about the only
different driver might be the NIC and possibly a RAID card driver
and they work, just have different names.
