    MINIX came with all of the sources, and since it was meant as a
    teaching tool, the source code was well laid out and nicely
    commented. I got a new understanding of networking by reading through
    ne2000.c.

    Found this message, about peanut I assume, and agree w/ yer mention that Minux WAS built as a teaching tool - thats, in fact, the only reason it exists. Had AT&T embraced open-source before there was open-source, Minux would have never existed - and Linus might have never gotten a bug for Linux!

    That being said, I ordered Tenenbaum's Operating Systems book... (the original one) sure, its outdated - but what I'm hunting, I'm sure will be fulfilled in reading it!

    I learned a lot about ethernet by walking through the NIC driver source
    code. It's a well-done book and the source is well laid out.
