I am a newbie to Linux coming from a hardcore windows background so please forgive any future silly questions asked !!
I am installing third party search engine software on Red Hat Fedora Core 3 operating system but i need to build up a rackmount hardware server first but i am nervous as to what brands work or do not work ?!
I know a need the following: -
At least 1 GB of RAM
Not sure of the following: -
Raid 5 (Want to go for SATA and Western Digital Raptor 10000 rpm)
Intel Xeon or P4's (What works best, duals would be nice)
Motherboard (ASUS, TYAN, INTEL ?) what works best ?
Any help would be much appreciated (eg example specs and advice)
