Red Hat lets people try new Linux core

Red Hat has made good on a promise to let people try out Linus Torvalds' test version of the new 2.6 kernel, or heart, of Linux. The Linux seller said Monday that it would release 2.6.0-test1 RPM (Red Hat Package Manager) update files.

Red Hat developer Arjan van de Ven has made the RPM files available as a download. The software updates Red Hat 9, which is code-named "Shrike."
