I've wanted to learn Java Enterprise for a while now, but the fact that it won't run on Win98 regular kept me back. I Saw on the screensavers show that I could put two Operating systems on my computer(I decided to use Linux as my other operating system, even though I've never used it before, figure I'll learn two new things), so I have some questions, and if anyone could help i'd appreciate it: 1.Will Java Enterprise SDK run on Linux RedHat v7.1? I see at java.sun.com it is available for v6.1 2.I heard Linux is free, (which is good since i'm unemployed), does anyone know where I can download v6.1 or v7.1 for free(if JE SDK works with 7.1)? I have a cable modem and plenty of time so huge files won't be a problem).    More>>

1. I can't say for sure, but I expect it will run on anything after RH6.1.



2. RH distributions are freely available. If you have a CD burner, the easiest thing is to download the CD images, burn them, and boot from the main install CD-ROM. You should start your explorations at the Red Hat site (http://www.redhat.com).


You might also consider the Mandrake distribution - my favorite. It's based on RH but is better at setting up your hardware devices. http://www.mandrakesoft.com.


If you need help getting started as a Linux user, the best place is usually a local Linux user group - they can be found in many cities.
