HP Installer Kit for Linux: Important Red Hat
Linux installation information
Your HP Workstation was configured without a Linux Operating System (OS) as you requested. Hewlett-
Packard has offered this solution to allow you more flexibility in installing the Red Hat Linux OS of your
choice. To install your Linux OS, you must purchase a Red Hat Linux box set and install the OS according
to the following instructions.
Hewlett-Packard supports multiple versions of Red Hat® Enterprise Linux on HP Pentium® 4 and Intel
Xeon® Workstations. These versions include:
SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 (x86_64)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS 3 x86 (32-bit).
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS 3 AMD64/EM64T (64-bit).
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS 4 x86 (32-bit).
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS 4 AMD64/EM64T (64-bit).
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Desktop (x86).
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Desktop (x86-64).
To provide flexibility in installing the Red Hat OS version of choice, HP has created Installer and Driver
CDs. These CDs are included in the HP Linux Installer Kit, and the OS images (the .iso images) for
these CDs can be downloaded from the HP support web site at www.hp.com/go/workstationsupport.
NOTE: The HP Installer Kit does not include an OS. The OS must be downloaded from the web or
purchased as a Red Hat box set with the desired Red Hat version in order to be used with the Installer
or Driver CD in this kit.
