Sorry to reply to my own post, but I am now considering the following...

PE2650, 3Ghz, 1Gb, 2 x 73GB SCSI
RedHat Enterprise Server 3

Probably with an adaptec U160 and some sort of DLT drive.

I'm unfamilier with RH, how are security patches and OS updates handled
?

Is there an evivilant to Debain 'apt-get update', 'apt-get upgrade' ?

thanks

Hi,

I'm looking to buy a dell server to run Redhat 9 (our developers
preferred platform for app).

Which version of RH do I need to use for a database/web server ?

Professional ?

I'm thinking a PE1750, with mirrored 36gb drives, 3ghz, 1gb.

Any comments ?


Thanks
