    I'm also quite interested in what compsci students can do for the
    kernel project. I'm currently doing a little embedded development and
    research at school, but I and a few others would jump at the chance
    to work on the kernel (besides finding duplicate problems that the
    x86 merge is already taking care of, of course. ;)

    Also (as an aside), we're looking at redoing our operating systems
    curriculum out here at school...anyone aware of (relatively good) OS
    curricula? (time scope: one semester.)
