A few months ago I lost one of my 18GB IBM 15,000 RPM SCSI drives which had my Red Hat Linux 9 installation. I got a replacement but have been too lazy to reinstall Linux. I’m currently using the drive striped with the other IBM SCSI drive to create a 34GB RAID 0 drive in Windows XP. It’s much faster than a single drive alone, but I’m afraid of the drive dieing again so I don’t store anything important on it.
But after a few months, I think I will reinstall Linux on it. Don’t know if I should stick with Red Hat or go with Suse. I’ve contemplated putting Suse on one drive and Red Hat on the other and trying both out.
Update: I guess this answer my question as to which Linux to use.
