Quoting Gibney, Carol (carol.gibney at fas.ie):
> We run a Linux course here in the FÁS Training Centre in Loughlinstown, at present we are using REDHAT 9 but feel we should probably upgrade to FEDORA for the next course.
> I would appreciate your advice as to whether the upgrade is vital at this stage or will training on REDHAT 9 still suffice for trainees leaving our course.
I tried to google on the course, but I couldn't find much
information. The answer to your question would depend on what the goal
of the course is.
If this is heading towards training system administrators,
RHEL 3 may suit better, plus maybe you could organise the RHCA/RHCT
exam at the end. If it's a general course, using fedora would
seem like a good idea.
Another idea would be user use mode linux, so that you could
put a number of different distributions on one machine, why not?
Also using screen for actually watching somebody going through
steps is very useful.
Maybe you could provide more information on what
the goals of the course are.
