Re: Fedora core 1 or 2 on IBM Iseries



Thanks for you response.

Actually I want to run FC1 or 2 in a LPAR on a IBM AS/400, now called
Iseries or I5. This is not PC hardware but a $100,000+ IBM Power4 machine.

IBM say that SUSe and Redhat ES run in LPAR but no mention of anything
else. Was wondering if, as RedHat ES is a cousin of Fedora maybe FC 1 or 2
would run on it? Anyone have any idea?

For those interested here is a link to the Linux on Iserise site at IBM.
