lguest: hacking the little Linux hypervisor

(Only for those who complete the preparation session: see Program)

lguest is a way of running an x86 32-bit Linux kernel (aka guest) under another x86 32-bit Linux kernel (aka host). This tutorial will be an introduction to various Linux kernel and userspace hacking tasks, particularly writing small enhancements for lguest.

Previous knowledge of C and completion of preparation session are a must: no other knowledge is necessary.
