Hey, I want to write a linux (kernel and all) operating system, not exactly from scratch, but very close too it. I'm not a newbie when it comes to linux, and I have an advanced understanding of C/C++. I've been interested in writing a custom OS for a while, and have decided that a linux OS would be the best.

So, big long explaination short:
Anybody know of some good, free, in depth tutorials on writing a linux OS in C? I would prefer a pdf format, but any will do. I have looked at Linux From Scratch, but it just doesn't do it.

Operating Systems are pretty much the rocket science of computer science; don't expect free tutorials with plenty of copy/paste-able code.

If you're serious about this endeavor, you'll need good books. For OS theory, Amazon seems to like Modern Operating Systems, but that's probably because it's a text book.

Next, you'll probably need to at least look at the POSIX standard. Thankfully, that's free.

Don't forget to get info on all of the chipsets and interfaces you intend to support. I'd assume some of it is free, while most of it costs more than free.
