I'm thinking on buying a Dell PowerEdge T310. It's marked as certified hardware in Red Hat HCL, but I'd like to use CentOS. I know CentOS it's built from the RHEL sources, but do RHEL drivers work on CentOS?

Typically, RHEL drivers will work with CentOS. Sometimes, I'll need to modify the /etc/redhat-release file on the CentOS system to match a RHEL servers' in order to get certain drivers/software to install or run, but otherwise, things are pretty compatible.

CentOS is marketed as being binary compatible to RedHat. So while there is no guarantee for compatibnility (is there ever?), it is very likely that it works.
