I'm helping to access a group of Auspix (sp?) file servers, but the problem is they are using an older linux file format (similar to Solaris I hear) and the newer versions of redhat use a different format that is not backwards compatible. So I've set out for an old version of Redhat (3.0 or so) but I've had no luck finding an ISO, either there never was one, or Redhat has deleted it off their file servers. So my question is:

- Where can I find a linux ISO image that will use the old file format?

The oldest ISO version I can find is 6.2 on line ... and I have a 5.2 CD from a book...

Here is a version of 3.0.3 (no ISO though).

Just tossing out some ideas...

Are you attaching the drives to a linux PC?

If you are networked you can probably access them via nfs. I don't know filesytem type would matter.

If trying to attach the drive to a linux PC they might be a ufs filesystem which should be supported by linux. I'm not sure if you have to load a specific module or recompile the kernel. man pages has some info on mouting a ufs filesystem.

As michaelk said, nfs, if supported on the redhat 3 machine, would be another option for copying files if the Box is on a network.

FTP (or SFTP) could also be used, if available on the RedHat 3 machine.

In my research, the default Filesystem for the 1.x kernel was something called FSSTND (Linux filesystem standard) ... I don't know how to read it with new kernels...

-------------Edited below----------------
Oops...Actually FSSTND was the standard layout of the directories ... not the filesystem type ... ext2 looks like it was the filesystem type, so you should be able to read it on new kernels as well....

---------------------------
Is the filetype listed in the /etc/fstab file for your partitions?

It should look something like this:
/dev/hda3 / ext3 defaults 1 1

The third column would be the filesystem type....

The fstab is even the same on my HP-UX machine ... the root looks like this:

/dev/vg00/lvol3 / vxfs delaylog 0 1
