Download & Install Linux on Dell T310


I have a Dell Power Edge T310 server with24GB memory and 465 GB hard drive. I would like to download and install Linux. The idea is the install Oracle EBS after Linux has been installed.

My questions are : 

1) Which Linux distribution should I install. I unerstand Linux is open source - so will I be able to get download CDs or is the download available online. 

2) Is the server configuration sufficient for installing Linux 

I would appreciate any information on this as this is the first time I would be trying this.

    Yes, your server is great! and yes, Linux is available for download. Check out, http//:distrowatch.com and look under the Distributions drop down list at the top. Read through some of the release notes and see if one fits the bill. I do know of a database server specific distro right off, but maybe someone else will chime in here.

    You can always instal mysql if you need a database specific server.
