Red Hat to Offer Industry-Leading Training for Linux Kernel; Open Source Market Leader Unveils 2.4 Kernel Training in North America as Part of Complete Open Source Solutions Offering


Red Hat, Inc. (Nasdaq:RHAT), the leader in developing, deploying and managing open source solutions, today announced a new hands-on training course designed to provide a detailed examination of the Linux kernel architecture.

This next level in Red Hat's development curriculum gives the open source developer the most advanced and proficient skills needed to work with the Linux kernel. With the wide array of engineers reliant on the kernel for day-to-day programming, an intimate knowledge of the latest kernel's functionality and processes is vital to unleashing an open source system's full potential.

"Hardware OEMs, embedded engineers and software developers have been asking for focused training on kernel internals," said Peter Childers, VP Global Learning Services. "Red Hat is meeting that need with this new course, available in open enrollment or on-site, and up-to-date for kernel 2.4."

Red Hat Linux Kernel Internals is an intensive hands-on course designed to provide a detailed examination of the Linux kernel architecture, including process scheduling, memory management, filesystems and driving peripheral devices. RHD236 is taught in a classroom with computers equipped with the current Red Hat Linux distribution. This 5-day course provides hands-on training, concepts and demonstrations, with emphasis on realistic labs and programming exercises.

The courses are scheduled to start in June in the U.S. Information regarding Red Hat's Linux kernel training, course descriptions, registration and facility locations is available at
