Response to: Does it work?

Yes, it works. It took 5 hours and 7 minutes to install Coldfusion MX on Red Hat Linux 7.2 running on Virtuell PC 5.04. I used a TiBook 667 MHz 512 Mbyte.
Some tips: If you are new to Linux/Unix Like me read the article about using the terminal at this site or in the book, Learning Unix operation sytem, O'Reilly. It's cheap and easy to read. My first problem was how to get the files from Mac to Virtual PC. The share folder did not work for me when I run Linux. My solotion was to use the native FTP client in Unix.

    My best advice is to start it, wait until you get to the progress bar and then go to bed. It worked for me too, don't know how long it took sometime overnight it completed.

    Only problem is that I'm getting a 404 when I try to access the administrator... Anyone have any ideas? I had to change the install path from /opt/whatever to /usr/whatever. I'm using the built in JRun server.

      Why am I geting a "Your OS: Darwin is unsupported" error?

      What step did I miss?

      1) install cfmx on rh 7.2
      2) start and stop cfmx - confirm that it's working
      3) make a tarball of the cfmx directory
      4) move the tarball to OS X
      5) sudo ./coldfusion start

      Anxiously waiting for part 3 of this series.

        Well, I got through the RH install (7.3), the CF install, and... cold fusion wouldn't start. technically, JRun wouldn't start. 12 times.

        During the CF install, there was an option to install under Apache, or on a standalone webserver; I chose Apache. Was that incorrect?
