Editing the Linux Kernel
I have heard about editing the Linux kernel to create operating systems, but how? I would like to create my own personal operating system just for fun, nothing big, and I'd like to use the Linux kernel. It would just have basic software on it, and would be able to read from the Floppy, CD, and maybe a DVD drive. I know where to download the kernel, but once I do, then what? Where do I open it to edit it? What language is it in? I know some C, C++, and Perl, and other languages. Does anyone know a good book I can get started on this with?
