    HP 9000 and Linux

    I have a HP 9000 and wanted to put Linux on it. I'm new to the Unix world and I don't know if it is possible to do. I have installed Linux a cuple of times but because it is a HP box I don't know if it will allow me to bypass the HPOS. If anyone could kick me in the right direction it would totaly killer.

    Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.

    Doesn't the HP 9000 run HpUX. I used to run that at school, and thought it was a pretty good system. If so, why do you want to change it to linux? They are both *nix variants.

    ya but the cost of upgrading HPUX to the current version is much more expensive that a copie of Linux that is compatible with the box. The HP9000 is a server and were talking some major cash. Your right it is HPUX not HPOS
