RE: linux on a 9406-520



fixed

Assuming an all virtual partition installing either of the two distributions
of Linux is fairly straightforward. The only intrigue comes when you're
setting up the network server and storage. Those parameters must be
correct, but they are very similar to the IBM I install. The biggest
difference is in the loadsource for the initial installation. That needs to
be set up in the server definition so it knows where to find the image
catalog or DVD.

Rob pointed out some good links.

Try it! It easy to do and educational while you're at it.

Years back I had a Linux guest partition installed on an I host, 9406-550.
Install was ugly, it may have gotten better over time.

I have a spare 520 and thought I might load Linux up on it.

Anyone done this?

Links?
