To help develop a certain hands-on familiarity with a sophisticated operating system, students in this course will install and maintain the Red Hat Linux 7.2 operating system on several Dell computers located in the WL136 computer lab. Students in the operating systems course will be completely responsible for all aspects the system and network administration on these machines. Over the course of the semester we will make an effort to bring these machines up to the performance levels expected in a sophisticated academic or enterprise computing environment.
Four machines are available for this project. The teams and team leaders responsible for these machines are as follows:
Today's project is to install RH 7.2 on each of these machines. See these installation notes.
