I wasnít sure which was the best section to put this in, hardware, server or Desktop so if the moderators want to move this to the appropriate area thatís kool, I decided in Newbie due to not having a clue
I only started with Lunix 4 weeks ago from no experience so am very new to it and relise for what I want to do I really need a test box where I can build it, break it and then fix it.
Ideally I think I would want to have a box which I would be able to run virtual machines on.
I was on the week long course that Redhat supply of the RH200, during that course we were using a virtual machine. This course was the first time I had used a virtual machine so this was new to me so I might be biting off more than I can chew, but im sure someone will point that out to me if it will be.
My thoughts are of getting a machine at home where I can play around with outwith work, so I can test various uses for the machine, once I find some tutorials for RHEL/fedora.
I have the basics for it but was wanting to see what peoples thoughts were on the main hardware, ie cpu (speed, make) amount of RAM, motherboard, graphics.
I already got spares of Case, DVD drive, 4-5 Hard drives, PSU.
My thoughts was that I would need a beefed up CPU if im wanting to run virtual machines on it, RAM I was thinking the same but had no idea of what was Ideal, graphics I didnít think I would need to worry about to much as I aint playing games on it and I will be trying to mainly be in command line.
I aint asking for people to tell me the exact specs just some ideas of whats best whether through they have tried this before or if they know I will have issues.
Once i know roughly what to look for i will do the hunting for parts.
