This weekend I am getting ready to switch my server over
to Debian Woody from Red Hat 9.0. And have a few questions before I go and do
this about SMP Kernels.
I have a Intell LX440GX+ Motherboard with Dual PIII 500's running software raid
currently, I have found some great articles on getting the Software Raid
portion to work with debian so I think I am ok on that. My real concern is
getting the SMP Kernel working with it, and I have yet to really find any good
examples or docs on this. I am not new to linux but new to debian, I am used to
Red Hat were I have a GUI install and select SMP kernel and that is it. Now is
there an easy way to get a SMP kernel for debian or should I just plan on
creating my own from source?
The motherboard has a built in Adaptec aic7896/97 Ultra2 SCSI adapter, is this
supported by default without any trouble?
Also I have an intel Nic card 82559 that uses the e100 module/driver and have
read that this can be trouble some to get to working any info that some one can
provide to me on that as well.
Thanks for any help anyone can offer
