FYI, it looks like the CS345 labs are all being done in Linux this
semester:

True.  Dr. Snell has been tossing around the idea for several semesters
now, and we've finally found something that we think will work.  For some
of the lab assignments, the work will be done using User-Mode Linux (UML).

Everyone will be setting up UML with their own filesystems (copy on write)
and hacking some kernel code.  I think it will be a great way to do
something real in an operating system class.

I think that Dr. Cornell may need a little convincing that this is going 
to work, but I think he'll come around eventually :)
