    Hello All,

    I wonder what would be like to have Linux on Mainframe
    for use now. The bare metal is quite difficult to obtain.
    But since then I'd love to have my own server running
    this machine.
    After all... it's just a dream... reality like this
    would be huge overkill.


    If you have the hardware, Linux will run on it.. There are flavors of Linux
    for just about every known architechure.. If you get it.. it will run :)

    I went on a 4 day course on installing zLinux or something like that. It
    was an interesting experience and something I never used. Since I had
    never used a mainframe before there was a bit of a learning curve on
    using datastores and the 3270 terminal. For someone who already knows
    both mainframe terminology and Linux, it shouldn't be too difficult.

    Just don't question the fact you have to use the uuid of the disk in /etc/fstab!
