Wait a minute, aren't those architecture documents for the processor chips?That may tell the reader the specific instructions to access various features of the chip, but will it really offer any OS design?The problem with trying to find OS design documents is that this informationwill likely be very proprietary. If the desire is to get some idea of how an OS might be designed then searching for Unix® or Linux operating system design documents would be your best bet because those particular operating systems are supposedly "Open Source" and will therefore be more available. To this end, I suppose that getting the architecture documents from AMD orIntel could be helpful in understanding how the OS code has been implementedto take advantage of the features of the chips.If, on the other hand, you need the design of a specific OS you may need tojump through some hoops to get that information from the company that ownsthe rights to that particular OS (i.e., Microsoft Vista will probably not beavailable to you -- or anybody else for that matter). --- Holland's Person, Bill E-Mail: BillGallik@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx - As the skunk said when he fired a shot upwind, "it all comes back to me now." __________ View the list's information and change your settings at http://www.freelists.org/list/programmingblind
