NEED detailed MS-DOS info...

greyfoxNRgreyfoxNR Posts: 1Member
Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone could tell me where I could find detailed information on the inner workings of MS-DOS. I'm doing a project for a class and need detailed information about things like its Memory Manager (core wars..), Process scheduler/dispatcher, coccurency manager, file systems, and overall structure. I need very detailed information, right down to what algorithms are used for process scheduling (time slicing, priority based, fifo, etc..) and what algorithms used for page frame replacement etc. Is this kind of information avalible to the public? If so, where can I find it? I've been having a lot of trouble locating any good infomation on this subject.

Let me know
Thanks guys


    one document is Ralf Brown's "Interrupt List", see

    Search for "Interrupt List" on PHeaven.
