ABSTRACT
Having students modify an actual operating system kernel or
network protocol stack opens their eyes to what is going on
"beneath the hood" of a computer. However student
modifications to a system may result in an unstable computer.
Because of this, giving students such experience has in the past
required a lab and/or computers dedicated to the students in the
system-level course, and computer science departments without
such dedicated facilities have been unable to provide their
students with system-level experience. In this paper, we present
two ways of giving students system-level experience in a non-
dedicated lab; one using commercial software (VMWare), and
another using open-source freeware (User Mode Linux Kernel).
