I've been looking at amazon.com, and i found some interesting books
*-Operating systems concepts; John Wiley & Sons
*-Understanding linux kernel 2/e; o'reilly
*-Linux device drivers; o'reilly
*-Solaris Internals Core Kernel Architecture; prentice-hall
*-Linux kernel internals; addison-Wesley Pub Co
*-UNIX internals: the new frontiers; prentice-hall
*-Design of an UNIX operating system; prentice-hall
*-Design and implementation of the 4.4 bsd operating system;
addison-Wesley Pub Co
which books would you choose and why, considering my position.
