Perc 6/i w/SATA RAID 5 ?

I am looking for a powerful workstation and Dell has the Precision T5400 that I can configure with a RAID 5 using the PERC 6/i controller. Does anyone know if this can be done with OpenSuse 11.1 64-bit? I would hate to spend $5k on a system and then find out I can’t run the OS I want.
