I'm using SLES10 SP2 in production on HP Proliant and SUN Sunfire
servers without issues. Are you using stock modules for the RAID
card?. If you need to install third party modules, you must compile
them booting with the Xen kernel.

Is a good idea to update firmware/bios on the servers and SLES patches
are a must.
