I tool kdo's advice and am now using the Desktop environment (Gnome) with Linux
(Actually it was there all the time, so I should have installed DB2 right on top of it).
I apologize for my apparent stubbornness)
Now that I have a Linux server console, I still do not understand how to invoke the Configuration assistant on Linux
Its easy on Windows, but I do not see a path to it on the Desktop
Does anyone know how to invoke the configuration assistant
(I am trying to connect WMB to DB2, and to do that I need to register a DB2 data source)
