I have been thru the IBM Linux on Z workshop and as part  of that, a Linux 
install was performed (under z/VM).
The Linux install (Red Hat?) portion was quite simple and excellently packaged.

That being said, Linux on bare metal (as opposed to z/VM) is, IMO, of very 
limited use.
Most of the advantages of Linux on Z occur under z/VM. (server stand-up, WLM 
performance,.......)

Subject: Linux (zLinux) on zSeries

Finally we are getting an IFL from IBM on trial  to install Linux on our z13. 
No KVM or zVM on the Mainframe. I am looking for any redbooks or IBM 
installation document for Linux on zSeries. I am inclined towards  Red Hat 
Enterprise Linux AS 7 as I expect it to be better integrated with APACHE SPARK.
Hopefully IBM zLinux document can give me comparative studies of different 
Linux distribution available on zSeries.

seeking expert advise , experience,   gotchas, ROTs.

Regards
Munif
