i've been testing new OSes, and here are what i've found :
using HP Proliant ML150 G2 with 2-Xeon 3.0G
solaris 10 ->use 7GB+ full install -> about 2,5 hours
fedora core 4 -> use almost 3GB full install -> about 1,5 hours
and compare to these :
win2k3 server -> less then 2GB full install-> about 1 hour
and the most famous mini OS -> KNOPPIX use about 700MB... less then 15 minutes : )

and i'm start to think to get a break installing OS : )

what do you think guys?

    Are you testing this for your own research? Or are you writing a paper and doing the research to show your findings?

    'i' before 'e' except after 'c'.... weird?

    Ubuntu will be a little under 2G and I am willing to bet it takes less than an hour, but I have never timed it. I wouldn't use it as a server without locking it down though.

    yup, do the lab thing before i hit the road. testing new things - compare them - and make suggestions to clients before implementing - so at least i know what and how they are (OSes) before i meet my clients. icon_cool.gif

    Im not sure i understand how doing what you have done has benefited you. The only thing that i could think of is that you are trying to determine how long it will take for you to install X number of machines. But even then doing install scripts that automate the process would be more beneficial.

    Also why the full installs? That opens so many many many many problems especially when it comes to secuirty.
