    SubjectRe: In great need
    I am a newbie/wannabe kernel hacker too :). 

    Here are the steps I plan to take:

    [1] Take an Operating Systems class (or read through the
    syllabus materials).
    [2] Write a small operating system (to learn the stuff
    that OS courses/books don't teach... for example, it
    took me a while to realize where the BIOS loads the
    MBR... thank god lilo is open source).
    [3] Learn a little about hardware and hardware
    standards like PCI, PCMCIA, ACPI, USB, etc.
    [4] Read Oreilly's "Understanding the Linux Kernel".
    [5] Read the linux-kernel FAQ and archives
    [6] Read (No Posting!)
    [7] Read linux source code
    [8] Read (Post at Will!!)
    [9] Identify an area of need
    [10] Write code
    [11] Sacrifice a virgin pigeon and drink milk of an
    albino goat....

    You are now a kernel hacker.

    I'm at step 2... perhaps as I go further a few of the
    steps will disappear :). Just my $0.02.
