Question Kernel as system monitoring?

How can I edit Linux's kernel so it can monitor floppy drive or CPU and memory work?

Which line I have to edit? and how?

If there is code in edited-version, please tell me that link.

Thank you for helping me.

to view mem as well as cpu work and process that are being used, try using cmd top under text mode and gnome-system-monitor if u are running gnome under GUI.

you might try gkrellm, it uses the virtual files generated by /proc/ also has lots of skins to change it's look.
