Installing LINUX in Alpha Server 400 and Personal WorkStation 600au

Installing LINUX in Alpha Server 400 and Personal WorkStation 600au

Post by Javier Pe? » Thu, 21 Sep 2000 04:00:00


    I have 2 alpha computers ready. One is a AlphaServer 400 and the other
one is a Personal Workstation 600au. I want them as firewall.

    Can I install Linux on them? What kind of distribution do you recomend
me? RedHat is out of stock some days ago. Is there any problem? I saw also
SuSE 6.4 available.

    A web page with hardware compatibility is ok for me also.

    Thanks in advance.
