Here's a bit of history.  We have used aix since 1986 or so and linux for the last few years.  We have two new IBM System p5 boxes with aix 5.3 and RAID 5. They are configured with all our code; but, are not on line.  My plan was to bring them on line this month to replace our 4-year old IBM aix boxes.  However, the IBM guys claim that we can run Linux with no downside.  Now, we have no real problem with aix.  But, we have a few good-size Dells running various versions of Linux.  If, in fact, we can run it on the P5 machines with no compromises, why not?  So, as you might guess, my questions is, do any of you have experience with Linux (RH Enterprise 5) on IBM P5?  I plan to hold off on putting the machines on line and install linux and do some testing.  So if any of you can point out some stuff to look for, it would be a big help.
Many thanks,
