FreeBSD 9.1 is running here on a few DL360 G5's with the P400i and I've
seen no problems with them. I've seen about 200 of the same machines in
production for a few years with Windows and Linux and not a particularly
notable failure rate. I just did a simple web search for P400 problems
and didn't come up with much. I'd be surprised if there's a significant
difference between the P400i and the P400.
