    Debian on IBM xSeries 330 and HP LP1000R servers
    by infernix on Friday, September 28 @ 18:37:46 BST

    In the near future we are going to buy either IBM xSeries 330 or HP LP1000R servers. We are going to run both W2K and Debian on them. These servers are going to be loaded with RAM (2GB and 4GB), they will have two CPUs (P3) and will be connected to storage appliances through FCAL. I have searched the web on compatibility or reliability issues, but there’s a lot of HP and IBM propaganda to dig through. Can someone make some recommendations on these machines? Does anyone have real-world experience with either of these beasts?

    alp: It’s worth noting that while both IBM and HP have pledged support for Linux, the latter has chosen Debian as the basis for its future research and development projects.
