> New version of Cisco IDS runs on Linux box where as older version runs on Solaris.

to put it together:

The "new" sensor-software (ver 4) both of the appliance and the IDSM2 (Cat6500-Module) runs on top of RedHat-Linux. The "old" sensor-software (to ver 3.x) of the appliance runs on top of Solaris.

Want to guess what OS the old Cat6500-Module (IDSM1, EOL) was running? You won't believe it, it's Windows NT4.
