Originally developed over the global Internet, Linux has become a widely-used OS that involves its users in developing new features.
Packages are freely available for running the Netscape Communicator web browser and for maintaining World Wide Web sites How to Get Linux You can learn how to order Linux by contacting the following: Red Hat Software 4201 Research Commons, Suite 100 79 T.

NOTE Red Hat Linux 5.2 does not support multi-processor systems. HP does not recommend implementing SMP on Red Hat Linux 5.2 The following procedure assumes your hard drive does not have any partitions. (Especially, it assumes there is no utility partition installed.). Removing All Partitions The following procedure is used with new hard disks.
<Enter> 8. CD-ROM initialization message—brief pause 9. "Installation Path" ---> Install <Enter> 10. "Installation Class" ---> Custom <Tab> to "OK" <Enter> NOTE "Server" and "Workstation" classes may be more limited in flexibility than is "Custom". 11. "SCSI"—message (such as "Scanning NCR 538xx") for LPr or ("Scanning Adaptec 2740,2840,2940") for LC3 and brief pause 12.
<F3> 16. On the edit screen in front of the text string indicating the root file system, type (in Linux, this / indicates the root directory) Tab to "OK" <Enter> Notice the "/" in front of the main Linux Native partition. 17.

Appendix A Configuration of System Tested Hardware NOTE Maximum RAM size for this release is 1 GB. Baseboard Hewlett Packard NetServer LPr and LC3 System Board Processor Intel Pentium II microprocessor operating at 400MHz. Memory Four 128MB PC compliant DIMM. Always check approved memory list before buying DIMMs for your HP LPr or LC3 Net Server.
Appendix B Example Hard Disk Setup using fdisk The following is an example for how to use fdisk to configure a drive. This procedure assumes you used the DOS utility fdisk/mbr to erase the master boot record at the beginning of installation.
NOTE This step assumes there is no utility partition on your NetServer. NOTE The cylinders on your hard disk may be different from this example. n <Enter>, p <Enter>, 2 <Enter> First cylinder: 981 Last cylinder: 1008 NOTE Administrators with a basic knowledge of disk data storage may want to decide their own usage.
Appendix C Installation of Red Hat Linux 5.2 on the HP NetServer LPr and LC3 The following notes refer to installation. They are keyed to The Official Red Hat Linux 5.2 Installation Guide. (3.4.1) When installing from a CD-ROM, you do NOT need to use a floppy disk. Just enable the BIOS to boot from the CD drive itself.
