This IBM Redbooks publication is about POWER Linux implementation on the IBM System i platform. With the brand-new technologies of POWER5 and IBM Virtualization Engine, POWER Linux on i5 is even more powerful, scalable, and flexible. We also have new versions of Linux distributions that are available for POWER Linux on IBM System i platform. They are SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 10 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 4.

This book gets you ready to plan, configure, and install Linux on System i platform. It provides information about setting up a network connection between the server i5/OS partition and the client Linux partition over virtual LAN using various methods. It also covers various topics of administration, operations, and tips and techniques.
