You can use allmost any distribution. Except that you need to run a kernel
from the supported distribution if you want to use the TSM drivers.
I have TSM 5.3 running on my laptop (debian unstable) without a problem. I
use a custom kernel, I don't use the TSM device drivers.
But I couldn't install the ISC because I was not running a supported
distribution. I tried to hack the java code because it was checking my
kernel (uname output), but no luck.
- any distribution if you don't use the TSM device driver
- any distribution + supported kernel if you want to use the TSM device driver
(this works, I was able to get TSM using a tape device on debian unstable +
supported SUSE kernel)
- any distribution + supported kernel if you want to use the ISC (not checked)
