Hi,

I don't think it is possible. RedHat does not support PA-RISC (yet). I've heard of a project to port Linux to PA-RISC, but there are no official releases yet.

Bye,

Re: Installation of red hat linux

Carly Fiorina spoke at Networld+InterOp last week about HP's desire to embrace open source and support LINUX. Given HP's desire to control their systems as much as possible, either HP will release their own version of LINUX for PA-RISC or they won't support it at all.

HP's focus on LINUX seems to be strictly on the Intel platform. Since they give away the OS with their PA-RISC platform, it will be difficult to see how they can make a LINUX port "pay" its way.
