    This IBM® Redbooks® publication describes how to create your own Linux® virtual servers on IBM System z® hardware under z/VM®. It adopts a cookbook format that provides a concise, repeatable set of procedures for installing and configuring z/VM in an LPAR and then installing and customizing Linux. You need an IBM System z logical partition (LPAR) with associated resources, z/VM 6.1 media, and SLES 11 SP1 Linux for System z.

    This book assumes that you have a general familiarity with System z technology and terminology. It does not assume an in-depth understanding of z/VM and Linux. It is written for those who want to get a quick start with z/VM and Linux on the mainframe.
