Yes, Redhat knows a lot. They bought core KVM project/company for over 100m and invest a lot to replace Xen and will introduce KVM in Redhat 6. As Redhat 5.3 has to be based on Kernel (2.6.18) they cannot support KVM now. the 2.6.18 Kernel on Redhat has a lot of drivers back ported but for KVM this does not work (minimum 2.6.20). In fact, they know a lot and they choose KVM.

No one from Dell contacted us to solve issues but we are always open for solutions. In fact, Dell refuses to talk to non market leaders whenever you try to talk to them - but this is ok for me, if they change their mind they are welcome here. But as far as I know, it works anyway...
