    Angry Unanswered: Can not find a V8.1 GA DB2 Linux CD...and IBM looks not distributing it any more...

    Hi,

    I was trying to install a DB2 64-bit instance on a Linux Redhat (RHEL) 5.1 (2.6 kernel) 64-bit but the latest fixpak 16 installation requires the V8.1 GA installation CD.
    I do have (many) DB2 on AIX 64-bit CD but I can't find one for Linux.

    I recently asked IBM but still did have no answer
    ==> Does anybody know what to do in this case ?

    Thanks for reading anyway

    If you can find the 8.2 GA code or the 8.2 Try and Buy, these will work also.
