Compatibility listings for Linux distros?

I'm a sys admin, and I need to find out what hardware is supported by the kernels in the latest Red Hat Enterprise, Mandrake, and SUSE Enterprise operating systems? Is there a compatibility listing for all the distros? I know that Microsoft Windows has a list. Do support levels vary depending upon the distro version?

Red Hat, Mandrake and SUSE maintain a complete list of supported hardware for each level of the kernel that they support. You can find this info on their websites.
