Notice is hereby given that a class action lawsuit was filed in the United

purchasers of the common stock of VA Linux Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: LNUX) from

The complaint alleges violations of the federal securities laws. On
December 9, 1999, VA Linux completed the initial public offering ("IPO") of
its common stock. In connection with the VA Linux IPO, the Company filed a
registration statement and prospectus (the "Offering Documents"). The
complaint alleges that the Offering Documents were materially false and
misleading, because, among other reasons, the Company's underwriters had
received undisclosed commissions from certain investors with the understanding
that they would receive large blocks of shares in VA Linux's IPO.
Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of class members and is
represented by the law firm of Schiffrin & Barroway, LLP, who has significant
experience and expertise prosecuting class actions on behalf of investors and
shareholders. For more information on Schiffrin & Barroway, please visit

so choose. In order to serve as lead plaintiff, however, you must meet
certain legal requirements.
