"Linuxcare has lost its second senior executive in two weeks, another serious roadblock to the company's delayed initial public offering plans."

"Chief information officer Doug Nassaur, 33, resigned yesterday from Linuxcare, a provider of Linux consulting services and technical support, less than two weeks after former chief executive Fernand Sarrat, 49, departed under mysterious circumstances."

"In an interview today, Pat Lambs, head of Linuxcare's office of the CEO, said the two resignations were completely unrelated."

"Sources familiar with the management changes, however, said the departures were linked by a common cause: a three-way disagreement among the company's top managers. The company founders disagreed with Nassaur over the software used to run the Linuxcare operation, and both the founders and Nassaur disagreed with Sarrat, sources said."
