    Hello All,

    I am new to this forum and newbie to Linux as well. I want to implement an IO/disk scheduling algorithm (e.g. FCFS, SSTF, SCAN etc) for Linux kernel. I have my own algorithm approach which I want to implement for Linux. I have installed VMware and Fedora on my machine. But I have no idea where to start implementing the algorithm now. I don't even know how to compile the Linux kernel code in fedora. This is all what I know about Linux right now.

    So my questions are:
    1 - How to compile Linux kernel code in fedora?
    2 - How shall I implement disk scheduling algorithm and what will be involved from start to finish implementing the disk algorithm for Linux Kernel?
    3 - What are the complexities involved to implement it?
    4 - Also share any good reading and video material for it?


    I'll be very grateful to you for any help.

    Thanks in advance,
