kernel system calls
now i have the linux kernel(version 2.6 to be exact) and i'm thinking about monekying around with it but there seems to be like a billion of lines of code which i cant decipher, i tried various tutorials but they seem to just explain the "concepts" of the linux kernel rather than delving head deep into the kernel code its self. Now i'm not saying that i want a paragraph-long description of each function because that would be impossible, however, i at least want to know enough so that i can develop my own desktop environment if i wanted. so if anyone can point me in the right direction i would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in advance :)

thanks, alot and i know one of these books may say how to do it but since i haven't bought any as yet could you tell me how to execute a program from another program(as in what calls do you need to make)
