Linux on Optiplex GX270? (OT) John_Hull at
Tue Oct 28 10:56:00 CST 2003

We have tested RHEL 3 WS thoroughly on the Precision 360, which has an
almost identical motherboard to the GX270. All of the GX270's devices should
be supported natively, including the integrated Intel ICH5 SATA controller.
Let me know if you find any issues...

Thanks very much for all the responses.  Good, useful, feedback. We are
going to go ahead and try RHEL WSv3 on a GX270, and see how we get on.  But
it sounds promising.
