Re: Writing my Own Kernel?!
Where you say Kernel I say DOS.
Linux is a Disk opperating system,
MS DOS is a disk opperating system
NT DOS, FreeDOS OS/2 MAC OS everything is a disc opperating syetm. they opperate the machine hardware and snd signals of how to read and write data.
the pretty windows you see in front of you are not really a part of the OS they are just a shell that sits on top.
Once you have the disk oppearting system making the disc spin, and you have the shell then you really need to have some applications.
Linux uses the GNU applications, without GNU linux is nothing more than something that makes some light come on and disks spin.
There are quite a lot of small DOS's out there that are usefull, but as I said you need to make sure there is some kind of coherance and compatibility with applications or else your DOS will be practically useless.
