    I'd try to get direct help from Dell. They normally sell their servers with RH Server if the customer wants that, so they should also have the drivers, and those should most certainly work at least with CentOS without needing any recompilation. If you cant get it to work with their help, I'd first install the OS on a disk not connected to the raid controller, so that everything is standard. Once you have the server up, add the Raid hardware modules and check the system if works, then copy your installation over to the Raid system.
