[CLUE-Cert] time and place

I have class on Tuesday and Thursday, altho I could probably afford going just
once a week.

I have 5 years of Linux experience.  I know some parts fairly well, but there
are a few areas that I have not delved into.

If someone wants to spend a lot of time at learning  how Linux is put together,
www.linuxfromscratch.org walks you through a complete installation from
scratch.  You do need a working Linux distribution and a spare partition to do
this, and you download and compile the tarballs needed to build your own
system.  You don't need to be a programmer.  I recently finished mine, and
altho it had its frustrations, it was also fun.
