Installation of Linux on System z

Now and then I get the question on documentation for the base installation of Linux on System z. As this depends on the distribution, take a look at the documentation from the distribution partners first:
There is also a Live Virtual Class with a demonstration of some of the access methods. Charts and a replay are available for this.
The installation is also covered in several Redbooks, e.g. The Virtualization Cookbook for z/VM 6.3, RHEL 6.4 and SLES 11 SP3.
