Chad,

>We're ready to purchase our server here at California Univ. to handle
>the data stream from UNIDATA, but had one remaining question yet
>regarding the OS.  Because of our purchase limitations from Dell, some
>of the servers come pre-bundled with certain-type OS.  The one we are
>now limited to is "RED HAT Linux," rather than the recommended Linux 9.0
>Professional.  Our question(s) is/are:  Is there a significant different
>difference between OS?

There are differences from one distribution of Linux to the next.
Unidata officially supports only RedHat Linux, but numerous sites
are running on different distributions:  Debian, SuSE, Slackware, ...

>Would we still be able to setup the datastream
>from UNIDATA with RED HAT Linux on our server?

Yes.

>Thanks in advance for your assistance!

No worries.

>Best Regards,
