ESXi & PowerEdge 2600: any limitations?

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
Am looking to use a Dell PowerEdge 2600 server w/ 4GB memory, five 36GB SCSI drives, and two 2.4GHz Xeon processors as proof-of-concept box for use with VMWare's free ESX3i product.  

The VMWare ESX Compatibility Guide does not give its blessing to this hardware; however, I purchased the server based on the experience of others that have successfully deployed this configuration.

Does anyone have any experience with ESXi and a PowerEdge 2600 server?  Are there any limitations to be aware of?
