HP Proliant DL140G2 (375589-421). This hardware is supported using Vanilla 2.6.x kernel series.

It does not include hardware raid and cdrom/dvd-rom is addon, but I highly recommend it because it makes installation of server easier and in recovery easier.

Sata chipset is Intel Corporation 82801EB (ICH5) and it is supported in kernel.

Network controller is Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5721 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express. See this guide.

No other notes for this time, this hardware works fine.

Note that this machine has E64 extensions on its CPU. Not all DL140s have similar CPUs. See [1] for more information.

Here's a bare bones .config for 2.6.15-gentoo-r1
