I bought a penguin box for a customer several years ago. It is now 
pretty much end of life due to obsolescense, but has never had a 
hardware failure, running nonstop for close to 3 years. My only 
complaint was that the video card in it was not supported by the stock 
RH 5.2 media it came with, so a subsequent OS reload never had a good X 
setup. Not really important since it was a web server, but an 
aggrivation none the less.

If by chance you liked the look of the old VA Linux 1u and 2u  servers, 
they are now being sold by california digital - 
http://www.californiadigital.com . Unfortunately, it seems like most of 
the VA expertise that went to CD was in sales and marketing.

I don't know anything about support from either of these california 
based companies.
