As I recall, there used to be a bug in the USB keyboard handling in  
the kernel that made the first boot of that model a little exciting if  
it had a DRAC installed, you had to boot a rescue environment and  
tweak something in order to get it to boot clean.  That may be fixed  
in 6.2, I haven't done one of those in a while.  Other than that, I  
never ran into any problems with them.
