"IBM will ship a CD with SuSE's version of Linux with each
of several Intel server models Big Blue sells in Europe, the
companies said. SuSE, one of the four major companies selling
Linux, estimates the distribution deal will give 20,000 customers
the opportunity to try out SuSE. The agreement also permits IBM to
sell its Netfinity servers with SuSE preinstalled, the companies
said this week at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in San Jose,
"The version of SuSE used in the distribution deal is set up
so that people can boot from the CD and try out Linux. They also
can install Linux from the CD."
"SuSE has versions of Linux that run on three of IBM's four
major server lines: Intel-based Netfinity, Power-based RS/6000 and
mainframe S/390. The company markets chiefly in German-speaking
countries and is planning an initial public offering."
