Teaching operating systems administration with user mode linux
User Mode Linux is a virtual machine running on a GNULinux operating system. It is the right choice for teaching operating systems’ administration, as it does not need any dedicated hardware. It runs at user level (no need for root, i.e. administrator, access or possible security threats) and it does not have the performance problems of an emulator. This paper describes how to set up a laboratory for teaching operating systems’ administration.
