Fortunately, you have access to the source code of the kernel and of the GNU system programs, like cp, dir, ls, etc. You might want to pick up a book on Linux programming such as "Linux Programming by Example" to understand how they are written. There are many languages available, but since the system itself is written in C, learning what you can about C and bash shell programming will probably be the best way to reach your goal.

Wrox publishes a "Beginning Linux Programming", might be worth looking into. I just wonder whether it's a good idea to take up programming before you're more familiar with OS.

This is a good book..

Personally, I would take the time to learn shell scripting first---this teaches you a lot about Linux in general.

As a previous Linux newb, I found this site (LQ). It has so much to offer, for beginners and advanced people.

Using LQ as a tool, jump in, try to get your install going, and begin playing with everything on your box. Search LQ and ask questions when stumped, and you'll learn a lot.
