Minix Boot Code Documentation

For MINIX 3 go to http://www.minix3.org. (Minix 3 released Oct 2005)

In May 2003, Andrew Swartzbaugh <raswartzbaugh@yahoo.com> announced:

... the Minix boot sequence site has finally been finished. ...

Since then I have looked at Andrew's site many times. I recommend it to anyone who is curious about, or who wants to experiment with, the Minix boot monitor and supporting code.

It also should be noted that, although this work was completed before Minix 3 was announced, the basics of booting Minix have not changed much with Minix 3. The information here will be useful whether you are working with Minix 2 or Minix 3.

Originally the site was at www.swartzbaugh.net, but in August 2006 it was moved to http://www.os-forum.com/minix/boot/.
