David,
Some how I missed that first email.
I would be interested. I am an RHCE and working as an Linux admin at a
local fortune 400 company.

I would like to help out. You can verify my cert at http://red.ht/lynndixon

You can email me or call me at 423-618-1414 if you decide I would be a good
fit.  I have a resume available as well.

Thanks!
