Server and storage connection.
Hi guys, Hope someone know how to solve the problem I am facing. I have two servers(poweredge sc440, if needed to know the machine) with Redhat 5.2 linux. I was working on this to servers to hook it to D1000 sun storage with 12 disks in it. The storage need ultrascsi cable and the kind of controller is HVD. I beleive I have everything I need to setup hardware wise. Once I make the connection to the storage I can start up the first server and it can see all the disk but when I try to strart the second server it just never make it. it just hang for awhile and it boot up but there is no way I can see the any of the disk on the storage. I assumed there is a problem with the initiator id. I figured there is an ID conflict in the   chain. Can anybody tell me how to reconfigured so that the two server can have two different initiator id to avoid the conflict. Any help will be appreciated.

You've got to change those coffee cups into wine glasses  I think the small distro you want for the memory stick thing is Puppy Linux .

Ramdisk as primary swap
On my notebook I have 160M RAM, but limited hard drive space, so I've only set aside 128 M for swap space. I know that Linus Torvalds himself has said that there are times when Linux tries to swap out everything in RAM, and so swap should always be at least two times the RAM. I've had some problems that I think may be directly related to this., , It's been recommended to me that one solution is to set up about half of my RAM as a Ramdisk, then tell Linux to make that Ramdisk the primary swap file. But I'm a Linux newbie, and I need more detailed instructions on just how to set that up. Can someone point me to the necessary information? I'm running SuSE 7.0.

Best I can do is point you to http://www.tldp.org I've found manny answers for my own unusual questions there, especially in the HOW TO's. Good luck and PLS report back if you manage to fix this up.

Specifying Installation Path (SuSE 7.0)
I'm dual booting Windows and Linux on my laptop, so I have limited hard disk space. I want to have the more "essential" Linux programs loaded on my hard drive, and always available to me., When I'm at home, I'm almost always connected to a SCSI Jaz drive. I would like to be able to try out some other space-hungry Linux programs by loading them to the Jaz drive, while retaining my basic system that I can run stand-alone. How can I tell Linux that I want a program loaded to the Jaz drive?

Thanks for the info. Since that post, I've had some problems with Iomega, and I'm trying to move away from solutions that use the Jaz drive. Still, it's good to know that there is a way, though I would hope someone creates a more new-user-friendly solution some day. I can't believe I'm the only one who cares where my files get installed.
