Not in my experience.  Not only did they refuse to support it, the guy was 
downright snotty about it.

Also, I recommend staying away from the MD3000 storage unit.  It has 
issues such as not being able to present LUNs larger thn 2GB, not 
supporting RAID6 and requiring a GUI interface to be able to install the 
command line tools.
