Thats another misunderstanding. Conectiva was never RedHat based,
unless you consider any distribution that uses RPM to be RedHat

Conectiva (1 N only), the company, once released a Conectiva RedHat
Linux, which was the RedHat Linux translated and localized to pt_BR.
Since Conectiva Linux 1, it was a completely separated distribution.

Actually, Conectiva has always been more closely related to
Mandrake and Debian than to RedHat.

There was no relation between Conectiva RedHat Linux and Conectiva Linux,
except they were released by the same company.

Yes, AIX is just one UNIX flavor, that is why I pointed my experiences
on other flavors too.

Which are two completely different beasts.

The Init scripts will change, a lot, even between different versions
of the same unix flavor.

But, then again, it is completely useless for me to continue arguing
with you until I provide the document I said I would. Just writing
e-mails about it won't make my point any stronger.
