Making an OS Image

Making an OS image involves a number of steps, depending on the hardware and configuration of your target system.

In this chapter, we'll take a look at the steps necessary to build an OS image. Then we'll examine the steps required to get that image to the target, whether it involves creating a boot disk/floppy, a network boot, or burning the image into an EPROM or flash device. We'll also discuss how to put together some sample systems to show you how to use the various drivers and resource managers that we supply.
