The best documentation out there right now is at:

The documentation there is still somewhat rudimentary but it's the
best that there is.  There are links to download all the BProc
tarballs and the preferred (fast) mailing list there too.

As far as working on Red Hat 6.2 is concerned, you will probably have
to start with a clean linux kernel source tree.  The source trees that
Red Hat distributes are quite heavily patched and my patches are not
likely to work on them without some (significant?) modification.

Font code?  There's nothing invovling fonts in there... Anyway, bproc
0.2.1 is ancient, I only hang on to it for historical reasons.  It
probably won't even work correctly on top of linux 2.2.17.  2.2.2 is
definitely the way to go.
