The administration portion reviews the tasks performed by the system administrator, including managing file systems, users, installing software packages and patches, system startup and shutdown, shell scripting, security, and backups/restores. The kernel tour includes kernel build/install, writing a command interpreter, and modifying/debugging the kernel.

Very very awesome that this was made a night class.  I'm strongly considering this one even though I don't really need it to graduate.

As of yet he has not been assigned an email address through the school. I would recommend contacting Dr. Bouvier if you have any additional questions.
