I've only ran RHEL on HP Proliants, but they should be able to run other GNU/Linux distributions as well. Just try using the installation image of the distribution of your choice and see if it boots.

You can also try a RHEL clone such as Springdate Linux. Are you new to GNU/Linux, if so I would recommend you try Ubuntu first.
