I have been testing Netview 7.1.3 on RedHat 7.2 and see that all the
functionality that I need is there.  Unfortunately, RedHat 7.2 is not
available and is not a product certified by the server hardware vendor;
the newer versions of RedHat are.  RedHat itself is not selling or
supporting this platform.  What is worse is that IBM itself will not
sell this version of Redhat with their xSeries systems!

So in frustration, I reloaded the machine with RedHat 7.3 [old, but
reliable and certified by hardware vendor]; changed the locale
information to en_US and then installed Netview 7.1.3.  It works fine. 
While I realize that RH7.3 is not a supported platform from NV/IBM's
point, I am wondering when support for the newer versions of RedHat is
going to come about?  

Perhaps, someone from IBM could shed some light on this issue given
IBM's push towards Linux.
