I want to make/develop an operatig system(not Windows, something little - to learn the basics of an OS). If anyone could give me some links or sources to help me out with this one I will apreciate(in asm, of course).

Thanx

Check my links page on the web site: V2OS, UUU, PizziOS, DS-OS are some other all ASM OS's. I personally like UUU.

Keeping the OS all-asm isn't necessarily an advantage. Look at V2OS.
They think they're 1337 because they can write an all-asm OS in 37k.
Well. What they have is a pile of unstable rubbish, a design they
obviously haven't thought through, and very very very little usefulness.
And also the project seems to have come to a halt.

On the other hand, we have linux. They want to do it all-in-c. Even
parts of the kernel that would be easier/more logical to write in asm.
It seems to me they only use asm where they *absolutely* must (or
are too stupid to write it in C). And don't come preaching about portability
here, because there are (obviously) MANY nonportable parts of a kernel.

Oh well, I'm just bitching. Tired of self-proclaimed gurus and leethaxxors.

I have little useful asm files..
It can be what you want.. Source of Kernel code in assembler..
Try to look it..

Yes, you ONLY have to learn from now on...
(after the very good link above...i cant add another one)

Just call me if you have any problems, as it looks we live in the same country ;)

For OS design testing a bug fixing I recomend Bochs. It is a largly complete i386 emulator. Best of all it is free.

It can (and will) allow you to boot Linux from withen Windows NT.

Find it and more info here: http://bochs.sourceforge.net/

Too bad bochs is very slow and pretty buggy. Especially the keyboard
emulation can be troublesome, perfectly valid A20 code can fail
under bochs. Pretty annoying. It's pretty nice that everything is
emulated though (even though this gives bad speed), it woudl allow
you to take the bochs source and make something "pretty nifty".

I prefer VMWare myself, it's much faster, more wellworking, more
stable (etc). Too bad vmware doesn't have a built-in debugger :(.
