Me and my friend are very interested in making an operating sytem on a floppy disk. We are looking for someone experianced to help us since we really don't know what to do. I was able to modify an example OS download, but well, that doesn't really count.
I'm decent with C/C++. My friend's a beginner, but he said he'll help out however he can, even if it's not with programming.
This will be a project for fun/learning only - no profit. If the OS is good enough we'll release it under the GPL.
Here are my ideas right now....
It boots to a command line and you have several utilites. An editor, some text games, ect. The file system will be FAT so it's compatable with other OSs (you know, so you could take the files you write in our OS off the disk and use them on a "real" OS).
So, if anyone's interested let me know. Like I said I don't have much experiance or knowlage in this area, but I am deticated. I'll do my best to learn... Post if you want to help out. We'll set up a channel on my IRC server to discuss it.
