Red Hat 9 on FTP?

  1. Well, certainly when I connected with good old smartftp, to ftp.mirror.ac.uk, it was there. Downloading it now in fact. So to all of you who want the latest version of Red Hat Linux, I am sure you can find it now.

    I would recommend it, certainly. Everything works and its very easy to install.

    You can view the list of mirror sites here.

    Your guess is as good as mine as to whether you will find the Red Hat 9 iso files on whatever server you try yet.

    some other are lucky, some other are not :D

    I'm on a Debian right now so i don't think I will scratch the whole thing :p

    Btw I would like to know if there is a way to install RPMs on Debian, or we can only use DEB packages / tarballs ??

    i believe there is a program called alien which converts between .rpm and .deb, etc...
