Rork, sooo you finally admitted it. :P
*ducks*

is it redhat enterprise server or fedora core? I have my fair share of experience with redhat (7.1 to 9) but I havent used it for few years. I never tried enterprise server, though. The installer should be pretty straightforward. What do you need it for?

Rork means RedHat Linux - http://www.redhat.com/ ;)

Ouch.
Found a book, it's RHEL 3, should be bit similar. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/de ... ce&s=books

I'll try to search something for ya. You should try this forum - http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions ... forumid=31 and explain your situation and looks for somebody to hire. Make sure to ask nicely. :P

Do you have access to redhat.com's network? If you do, try to find some docs to help ya.

dual cpu...u wanna make sure u install an "smp" kernel in order to take advantage of the dual proc setup. now whether theres a "default" smp kernel u can use during the install, or if youll have to recompile the kernel for smp is up in da air... :lol: so u may even have to jump into the kernel compilation pool :P ;)

I believe Redhat usually install default kernel which should include SMP (dual CPU). If not, look for some docs or howtos on the internet. ;)

Good luck.
