Pick one that is documented by a book.

I don't think that the course is intended to teach "current linux". It is
intended to teach "a modern OS", with linux serving as an example.

FWIW, kernel 2.2 can still run nicely with most recent hardware (at least
the necessary). USB keayboard/mouse might pose some problems, though.

And even kernel 2.0 is still maintained (well: sort of)
