Christine,
 I found it easier ( because I had the OS disks) to load the PC with RedHat6.2 and then install Oracle 8.1.7. That eliminated the glib and java problems encountered with the RedHat 7.0 and 7.1 versions. Then I upgraded the OS to 7.0 and finally 7.1 after I found things ran perfectly. There are white papers available on the OTN site for installing Oracle on RedHat versions. I would suggest you read them and get the required patched on hand if you decide to use RedHat.  The pc is a 850 MH cpu with 512 M memory and a total of 200 GB disk across 4 IDE disks with a SCSI 4mm Tape drive and SCSI Cdrom. Compaired to the currrent production DELL 6500 server with 1- 450 Mh cpu and 1 G mem with 72 GIG SCSI Raid 5 disk, The Linux box is about 3 times faster than the Dell box running Novell 5 OS and twice as fast as an Alpha class server with 600 Mh cpu and 1 G Mem. and 72 GIG Raid 5 disks.
 I use the Linux box as a test and play familiarity box to get use to the new options available for Oracle and to gain confidence for my OCP tests.

Greetings ALL!

Have a question for anyone who has info....I'm researching what it would
take to convert a NT database platform (Oracle 81730) to Linux. I have not
approached Metalink yet, but will soon. Does anyone have any information on
Linux? Whether or not Oracle can run on it? Info on the steps involved to do
so?

Thanks,
