Fedora for Proliant DL 360 G1 and DL 380 G1 ?

Hi folks:
I am new to Linux and self-studying the integration of Linux and Windows through a book. I have two old Compaq Proliant DL 360 G1 and DL 380 G1 servers. I want to install the Fedora Core 4. The PSP posted in HP website for both servers is for RHEL not for Fedora. I cannot find any PSP for Fedora. Where is the package of compatible drivers for Fedora? Thanks in advance.

CentOS is the "free" and "cost free" version of Red Hat Enterprise, you can use the drivers provided in the page with CentOS.

Shalom Wilfred,

I think the PSP on HP's website will probably work just fine, as would the drivers from Centos.

I installed Core 3, Core 4 and lately Core 5 on various rev Proliants and BL series boxes with no issues just using the default drivers. The lack of PSP support has come back to bite me though since we're implementing ISEE and this means a good portion of our server farm cannot be monitored. For a test machine like what you described though should be fine without PSP. Would be nice however if HP acknolowleged and supported other Linux OS's than just Redhat Enterprise.

(on a slightly diff note) Anyone know why HP (and other vendors)seems to have a very hands off view of FreeBSD, I've heard it has something to do with the BSD license.

you should not have any issue installing Fedora Core 4 on either DL360 or DL380 systems. I have installed both system with default drivers without any issues.

We used Fedora, but we changed to CentOS some month's ago, because it is binary compatible with Redhat Enterprise 4.2 and it works fine.
