RE: Fedora and Intel EM64T Xeon Processor based machine



Its certified on RHEL3 of course, but I've never tried installing Fedora
on it.

As someone else mentioned, make sure you've got the 64bit version of
Fedora!
FC2-x86_64-disc1.iso
FC2-x86_64-disc2.iso
FC2-x86_64-disc3.iso
FC2-x86_64-disc4.iso

What problems were you encountering exactly? You may be able to find
more help if you describe the faults.

If you are just looking to learn if other people are running Fedora on
this system, you might try mailing Linux-PowerEdge dell com (subscribe
at http://lists.us.dell.com/mailman/listinfo), as you don't seem to be
getting much of a response yet here.

Thanks,
Rafiq

dell typically certfies their servers to run a particular version of 
redhat. that would probably be a good place to start. you're dealing
with 
a spanking new processor and chipset so there's probably a little 
excitement to be had in doing that.
