Can I install the OS on an ipod for a startup device for any server
problems? Can the server version be put on it or does it need to be
the regular OS? Also, does this erase everything on the ipod and if
so do I need to reload certain software to get the ipod to function?
YES, but realize that the iPod's battery and drive are not designed
for continuous use. YES you can use whatever OS you like. MAYBE, if
you erase the iPod as part of the install, but why would you do that.
As usual, Dan is correct. The admins at the Virginia Tech super
computer use an iPod at times for booting a cluster server. For that
it's probably fine. But using the iPod as a startup disk for extended
periods of time it not recommended. I keep a system on my iPod for
debugging purposes, but never let it run for long.
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
