RH9 on a 64bit platform

Hi Guys,

Has anyone tried to install RH9 with kernel 2.4.x on the following machine.



Third generation XA-64e chipset
Intel Xeon MP up to 3.66GHz/1MB L2 Cache
Intel CT 64-bit extensions
667 MHz front side bus


Active Memory with Memory ProteXion and memory mirroring support
Up to 2GB of high-speed PC2-3200 double data rate (DDR) memory;
expandable to 64GB (with 4GB DIMMs)
Advanced third generation Chipkill ECC memory controller to help
correct single, two, three, and four-bit memory errors

Hard drive

Support for up to twelve 3.5 inch Serial Attach SCSI (SAS) hard
drives + optional integrated RAID 0, 1 and 5. Twelve 3.5 inch SAS hot-swap
bays for flexible installation of hard drives, supporting up to 3,600GB
internal data storage


Integrated Broadcom 5704 dual-port 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet
Optional integrated Remote Supervisor SlimLine Adapter II supporting
out-of-band systems management and remote POST, setup, and diagnostics,
without utilizing a PCI slot

Integrated Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) which complies with
the Intelligent Platform Management Interface Version 1.5 (IPMIv1.5)


ATI Radeon 7000M embedded
16MB SDRAM standard/maximum video memory
128-bit graphics engine with 8, 16, and 32 bpp mode acceleration
32 bpp (4G colors/True Color) support digital 24-bit TMDS digital
video signal to the optional RSA-2 SlimLine

Power supply

RAID support

The ServeRAID 8i SAS Controller is a high-performance RAID
controller that works with the onboard SAS controller of selected xSeries
servers to provide RAID-5 capability for SAS hard drives.

My company is looking at buying four of these machines but they have to work with our in house software which runs on RH9. I will appreciate any info you can give.

RedHat 9 is really old and was discontinued years ago. Surely, something that runs on RH9 should run on Fedora Core or RedHat Enterprise, if not other distros?
