We can install many different distributions of Linux, including Red Hat, SuSE, Debian, Mandrake, and Gentoo. These can be customized and configured to suit your needs. Custom kernels can be built, optimized for your specific hardware configuration. Perhaps you need a journaling filesystem on those disks where data integrity is essential.
