[K12OSN] RE: [K12OSN]Speaking of Server suggestions



I am an AMD fanatic, always have been. I haven't any first hand
experience with dual AMD systems and linux. How does Redhat 8 like the
Tyan Dual board?

Todd,

A good place to start is with the online source:  pcprogress.

They are located in a suburb of Chicago and have very competitive prices
for 
computer hardware.  I bought a new server for our lab and it runs great.

Specific hardware items for server:

Case:	Antec Server Tower model 1060 - lots of fans and good cooling
$ 125
MB:		Tyan Tiger S2466-4M - Dual Athlon cpu board
$ 231
cpus:	Two Athlon 1800 MP w/ fans and warranty
$ 286
Mem:	At least 1 gig ECC registered DDR memory	(2 x 512 mb)
$ 375
		note:  the Tyan board supports four DDR SDRAM chips
			 and additional 2-512 mb SDRAMs would be very
useful
hd ctrlr:	Adaptec SCSI 29160 - 160 mb/s with 68 pin connnector
$ 180
hdiiscs:	At least one SCSI 36 gb drive
$ 181
video:	Servers do not need fancy video:  use ati Mach 64 8 mb cards
$  26
NICs:	Two 100tx network cards:	Intel Pro 100s or 3Com
$  64
Case Fans:  Add intake case fan
$  15
Shipping:	Add $60-70 depending on how shipped
$  70
Add keyboard and mouse if needed
$  40
	Total Cost
$1,593

If you don't wish to assemble it yourself, PCPROGRESS will do so for a
nominal 
fee.  Check them out.  http://www.pcprogress.com
