Thank you for your reply first.

I am going to build a new Linux box for EDA simulation recently.
I plan to use intel i3/i5 4-core CPU to install RHEL 4.0, but i am worrying that whether I will encounter compatible problems or difficult-to-solve HW driver issue or not?

Can anyone who had the experience to provide me some suggestion?
If you can post your HW configuration, that will be very great, too.

Works fine here on an i7.

The processor type is unlikely to determine compatibility as they are all almost identical as far as software is concerned. It's the other peripherals on the board that might cause problems but Intel drivers should be supported without any issues.
