    fresh installation of 10g or 11g

    949210
      Hello People
      we are using 10.2.0.1.0 on windows server 2003(it is a licensed version for commercial use)
      we are planning to migrate to linux
      before we do so, i am told to implement linux on a new test server
      so please tell me which linux and which version should i use and
      which database version should i download(since this is for testing i will be downloading the version that is for personal learning purposes and does not require a license or a support id)
      the new test server is 32 bit
      (I DONT WANT TO USE VIRTUAL MACHINE OR VIRTUAL BOX)
      thanks
