Iqbal, 

Please don't start distro wars on this list. Everyone chooses the platform he or she
wants.



Rabe,

The RPM bundle is a tar archive that will contain all the other RPMs in one download. It
is offered for convenience.

The Server package is what you will need to install on the server machine; and it's
possible that you'll need the compatlibs, too. I /think/ that depends on your OS version;
I'm not exactly sure. The installation guide should provide more details on that.

On your client machine, you'll need to install the Client utilities - those contain the
commandline client. If you want to install Workbench, too, you will need to download that
separately from the Workbench section of the site.
