Test version of new Linux kernel available

Author: JT Smith

CNET.com reports that Torvalds originally wanted to release the 2.4.0 version of the Linux "kernel" in 1999, but cramming in a host of new features took longer
than expected. The 2.4 kernel improves Linux's ability to run on high-end servers with several CPUs and adds support for desktop
features such as universal serial bus.
