Question Where can I download the oldest Linux kernel?


Where can i download the oldest Linux kernel. I want this for learning purposes because 2.6 is very complicated...

So far I have found version 1.0 but nothing older than that...

thanks, found it
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern...x-0.01.tar.bz2

it's like only 10,000 lines of code :D

This is what a kernel panic looks like..

Code:
/*
 * This function is used through-out the kernel (includeinh mm and fs)
 * to indicate a major problem.
 */
#include <linux/kernel.h>

volatile void panic(const char * s)
{
	printk("Kernel panic: %s\n\r",s);
	for(;;);
}
lol it goes into an infinite loop :D
