Download & Install Linux on Dell T310
I have a Dell Power Edge T310 server with24GB memory and 465 GB hard drive. I would like to download and install Linux. The idea is the install Oracle EBS after Linux has been installed.
My questions are :
1) Which Linux distribution should I install. I unerstand Linux is open source - so will I be able to get download CDs or is the download available online.
2) Is the server configuration sufficient for installing Linux
I would appreciate any information on this as this is the first time I would be trying this.
