So I just got this PowerEdge 2550 that was decommisioned from work yesterday. It was in full working order, just a little older than we needed. Since I deal mostly with SQL, I thought I'd take it home and put Fedora on it, since we will be migrating sometime in the near future to Linux. As an admitted Linux "n00b", of course the first three attempts to get it to boot to the Live CD failed.
I did some Googling and found a few things to try (setting nouveau.noagp=1), which made it a little further, but still stopped after the progress bar made it all the way to the "Fedora 15" .
Are there known issues loading Linux on a server? Or am I just in over my head?
I am open to any (and all) suggestions. I need to learn Linux before they switch us!
