Hi, I am not quite sure what an IBM System/36 is, but I do know what platform linux runs on. It runs on PCs,Macs,Alpha, and one other platform that I think was a Power PC but I am not sure. Any way unless an IBM System/36 is a PC it is not supported. There might be a version of normal unix for it. Linux and Unix are not very differnt and if you know one you can use the other.

System/36 is an older min-computer, which later was developed into the IBM AS/400 series.
