1) Remember that Linux on RS6000 is Linux for a big server, it costs a lot of money. Moreover, you will need to have the distro for your system, I already tried to install the distro of a system to another type of system, it did not install.
Zorba can you eloborate on this.
Linux is for a big server, are you implying that you can only install linux on a heavy duty RS6000 box, and thats what costs a lot of money? What do you mean by distro of a system, I'm familiar with different linux distros, but not sure what you meant by that.
The reason I ask is I have a cheap ebay AIX box (single proc), that eventaully I might try to install linux on.
