"linux consultants" on google turns up a lot of small companies.
There are specific lists for distributions and applications, but few
resources for "free software" consultants in general.  Even if you
don't care about a kernel or distro, I think you will have the best
luck searching for consultants by a linux distribution name.  You can
get more specific if you know what application you need to research in

There is a group of consultants that I meet with locally for lunch
that will probably have a web page up in a few days.  Currently all
local to me (Sunnyvale, CA), but I'll forward the URL when the site
goes up anyway.
