everything towards our SuSE Standard.
We have Linux Admins on staff but are looking for 3rd level Sr Linux
Admin resource to assist in these specific areas. 
Project goals would include:

base install setup and working for our various hardware platforms and

2.) Getting Dell OpenManage utilities working under SuSE Linux so that
we have direct management capability of the RAID configuration and other
hardware details.
3.) Getting RPM's built for many of our applications such that it ties
into our scripted install. Many of the applications are open source.
4.) Running our Linux partitions from a NetApp LUN and tips and tricks
we can use to work off of snapshots of a single OS image that would
streamline the install and setup of systems from bare metal.
5.) Evaluation and possible implementation of a clustered file systems
such as OCFS2.
5.) Assistance in implementing single sign on for our Linux environment

every box. That may be RADIUS or integration with LDAP or just some
elegant automated scripting solution that propagates user setup from a
central location. We are open to listening to industry best practices in
that area.
