Does anybody have any experience with RedHat 9.0 on a Dell Optiplex GX270?
Are there drivers available for integrated audio card (Sound Blaster Compatible) and video card (DVMT Video) or should I order a separate audio/video adapter?

Give all positive and negative feedback you have, I will split the points.

>>you're smart enough to fix any problems

I will forward this thread to my manager, let's see whether he believes that <LOL> Soemtimes he gives me that, too, which just means: "You better get it done ASAP"

I don't have the systems yet, but I wanted to make sure I won't experience major surprises. Josh's link was quite helpful to get feedback on Dell issues.

Our contractor is quite familiar with RH, they are absolutely sure that's the way to go. All our other tools and the db are released for RH and we know about RH future ;-)

Thought you did, just wanted to nudge you a bit more... So you'll be dishing up the cash for RHEL then? I sometimes wish I could get my PHB^H^H^Hmanager to be as loose with money:-).

I'm not allowed to talk about my project too much, but our Marketing department is pushing into a new market for which our current solution is waaaaaaay too expensive. They don't even ask how much RH will cost :-)

Well, I've heard that RHEL can be pretty expensive on certain architectures... Then again, if you can afford a Zseries, some 10-20 000 USD/EUR isn't much :-).
