    Yes there is a Linux by Redhat.

    We have a thread called "Other OSes - Palm / Linux" where you can post your questions.

    I think you mean Linux - and yes there is.
    Try <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.redhat.com>http://www.redhat.com</A> - (although I couldn't connect a few minutes ago.)

    I believe you can either download it for free, or buy it (with documentation) at your local software store.

    Re: Lynux by Red Hat

    I visited that site and I didn't find any link to where I could download that program for free. I have to buy that and send it to someone in Switzerland. I know they could get it from there but they did me a favour sometime aga and couldn't say no.
    Thank you guys.

    A lot of the Linux magazines come with cover CDs that have various flavours of Linux on them, though I confess I haven't seen a Red Hat one recently. You can also buy a boxed version at somewhere like PCWorld if there's a branch near you.

    Re: Lynux by Red Hat

    Hi,
    I believe that RedHat Linux comes in (at least) 3 versions - Standard, Deluxe and Professional. I assume that the price will depend on which of these you need. (oddly enough, on PCWorld's website I can't find any evidence in their product list that they actually sell RedHat Linux at all!)

    There's a list of certified resellers <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.europe.redhat.com/reseller/resellers.php3>here</A> - several in the UK and some in Switzerland too.
    Hope that helps.

    if you go into their software and choose operating systems, you'll be able to see the list of operating systems, they've got 4 linux products, two of which are by Redhat.

    Yeah I just had another look - I searched on RedHat the first time, but they're listed under S.U.S.E.!

    Thanks Rory
    I send him the web address, so he could have a look and could buy it himself on the web or tell me which one to buy.

    You can also get RedHat bundled with books (eg. RedHat Linux 7.1 Bible).

    If you do go the book route, make sure that you get RedHat 7.1. Older versions are still on the shelf locally.
