How about I put you down for a maybe for "home user networking" and a
deffo for "corporate networking" ?

OK....how about three days then;
Intro to linux (and basic networking)
Advanced Linux (corporate networking, kernel overview etc)
Programming Linux (must get the Wrox book finished)
That way, people that aren't experts, but have a clue would be able to
teach the beginners (I've seen what happens when techies teach newbies -
DCU Computer Applications postgrads trying to explain to a first year
business student why you have to take a floppy out, before putting in a
second etc.), and the more advanced people teach the freaks :)
So, ideas for these courses ? And offers of teaching ? I'd like to do
these properly, and get Scope to advertise them in ComputerScope and
PCLive (as well as elsewhere), and get someone to pay for teachers
expenses, if they are coming up from the country, if that'll make things
easier for trainers. So, chances are, possible trainers/organisers could
meet up next week to discuss this ?
