I believe one of ours is a ML530 (dual Xeon 2.4 GHz). We've been putting
Mandrake on it (currently 9.0; have not had a chance to upgrade yet). Had
no problem running/compiling R at all.
For a limited budget, IMHO these are hardly a good choice. We got our first
dual Opterons with twice the RAM (but IDE instead of SCSI HDD) at around the
same price as the Compaq/HP, and that Opteron-based box will run rings
around the Compaq.
