Okay, I'm feeling kind of cocky, I'd like to dig into some kernel
I've got good asm skills (on the Z80, 680x and 6502, but the 32bit stuff
doesn't look too different) and my C isn't half bad. The kernel source
is so large; it's hard to figure out where to start. I have a basic
understand how the NetBSD tree is laid out, but the interactions are so
hard to follow; without some sort of a map.
What would be a good source on breaking ground into this area? How did
others get started?
