Slashdot readers dive into this question: "In the past couple of months I have
become increasingly interested in kernel programming and
have finally decided to take the leap and 'get my hands dirty.'
I have searched around the web and read a few docs and FAQs
on getting started with the kernel but I was wondering what
kind of personal experiences those in the Slashdot crowd have had that are so
bold as to start goofing with the kernel code. For those that have become
competent kernel programmers, how did you 'break in' and what advice would
you give beginners?"
