Seconded. I bought the first edition of the book (red cover) and a Minix
1.5.10 (I think) on 360K floppies distribution) about 15 years ago, and the
second edition (with the CD-ROM) somewhat later. I am not really a
programmer, but I learnt a lot about operating systems from that book,
and from fiddling with the code.
It's one of those books, like TAoE, that I would seriously recomend
everyone here should read. Sure it doesn't cover everything, and you may
not agree with all the methods in it, but at least you'll learn enough to
understand other books on the subject.
