Hi Jeff,

I am in the same boat as you - I have plenty of Oracle experience on
and Solaris, but I have recently had to use DB2, and have really run
roadblocks into finding any useful docs about getting this beast to work
Linux (or any other platform). I suppose that I have been spoiled by
excellent books that get a person up to speed quickly with the database.

In the case of IBM DB2, there are the IBM Redbooks available on the IBM
but you'll find that you really have to struggle to get through them
just to
understand what is going on. I haven't gotten that far, yet. Everything
find that is a book about DB2 is geared towards certification, not
getting something up and running for development.

To make a long story short, I can't point you anywhere but the IBM
available online at If you find anything, please let me know.

Good luck,
