Installation time: 15 to 30 minutes, depending upon the hardware.
The Access Gateway runs on NetWare® 6.5 (included in the installation) or Linux (included in the installation). If you intend to install the NetWare Access Gateway, skip this section and go to Installing the NetWare Access Gateway.
You have the following options for installing the Linux Access Gateway, depending on whether you want to do an advanced installation or accept the default settings:
Standard Installation: A standard installation can be done with minimal user intervention. Use this method if you want to use the default installation settings. See Section 5.3, Using a Standard Linux Installation with the Default Settings.
Advanced Installation: An advanced installation allows you to customize the machine. The default partition proposal for advanced installation creates a 4 GB swap partition and one-thirds each of the remaining space will be utilized to create the / partition, /var partition and COS partition. You can change the partition sizes according to your requirements. See Section 5.4, Using the Advanced Installation Option.
Manual Installation: Manual installation is similar to the advanced installation in that you can customize the machine. If the automatic loading of drivers causes problems with the advanced installation, you can perform a manual installation and manually select the drivers.
The Linux Access Gateway can be installed on all SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 9 SP 3 supported hardware platforms.
