Red Hat EL 2.1 on BL 10e or BL20p blades

Any and all RH Linux pros,

We're looking into running Oracle database and 9iAS on Proliant blade servers w/ Red Hat Linux (EL 2.1), as an alternative to HP-UX or Windows. Unix is preferred for stability and security, but HP9000 (PA-RISC) servers are expensive. Is anyone running RH EL 2.1 on Proliant, particularly blades? If so, any insight you can offer would be appreciated. Also, anyone know if RH EL 3 has any proven features worth waiting for?

We're running RHEL 2.1 on DL360/380 G3 - it works!

BTW, RHEL3 is already here, I suggest to start with this version.

RH 3.0 isn't yet supported on Proliants, but it is expected to be in the next month or so. If you go for version 3 of Redhat, keep this in mind (probably worth the wait!)
