Re: DL140 and RedHat 8.0

RedHat 8.0 was not the intended deployment O/S for this server as RedHat ended support for 8.0 a while back... so did HP.

You may be able to get the O/S to build on this server as it really a PC in a pizza box.

Here is a doc that gicves some hints on installing RHEL 2.1:

Here is a link to all the software and drivers you may be able to use in building this server on 8.0:
