LINUX is a UNIX-like operating system for PCs. Originally developed by a Finnish student, enthusiasts from all over the world have continued to contribute to the development of LINUX via the Internet where the complete operating system can be obtained for free. Most off-the-shelf versions of UNIX are extremely expensive, but, unlike LINUX, these versions of UNIX do offer technical support. This book is a practical overview and guide to LINUX kernel programming - information that is often a well-kept secret - providing hackers with a detailed exploration of the 32-bit operating system and how it works. This book provides an introduction to kernel programming for C programmers together with a comprehensive reference describing system functions and kernel commands. In addition to coverage of the latest version of LINUX 1.2, this book is accompanied by a CD-ROM which includes a complete, easily-installable version of the LINUX OS for PCs, with development tools, Internet tools, Window System and Tcl/Tk, plus LINUX FAQs and 'How-Tos' and program sources for program listings within the book.About the Author:
