Designing a Software Specification
In this first installment of a multipart series, the design specification for 386BSD, Berkeley UNIX for the 80386, is discussed.

Three Initial PC Utilities
Utilities to let you execute GCC-compiled programs in protected mode from MS-DOS and copy files to a shared portion of disk so MS-DOS and UNIX can exchange information.

The Standalone System
Using the protected mode program loader, a minimal 80386 protected mode standalone C programming environment for operating systems kernel development is created.

Completion of basic 386BSD device drivers.

Missing Pieces I
Finishing the NET/2 release of Berkeley UNIX to obtain a complete, unencumbered system for the 386 PC. Describes the methodology and implementation of the remaining facilities necessary to generate a working operating system for the PC.

Inside the ISO-9660 Filesystem Format
Most programmers are aware of the ISO-9660 standard and its significance in sharing CD-ROM data between different platforms. In our article "Inside the ISO-9660 Filesystem Format" (DDJ, December 1992), we examined how this standard has encouraged the use of CD-ROM technology and how a modern ISO-9660 CD-ROM is structured. ISO-compliant CD-ROMs are interchangeable and can be used on any type of system and architecture. However, the minimalism that helped make the ISO-9660 standard successful may sometimes be too minimal for specific applications (such as distributing POSIX-based, bootable CD-ROMs). Because ISO-9660 does not adequately support the POSIX filesystem, the Rock Ridge Group was formed to develop ISO-9660:1988 extensions, which take advantage of the system-use area of the directory record (provided for in ISO-9660) to store complete POSIX filesystem information.

The 386BSD Release 1.0 CDROM Liner Notes
We are pleased to present the release of our first official 386BSD Reference CD-ROM. This single CD-ROM contains the most up-to-date work in our continuing operating systems and networking research project including articles appearing in Dr. Dobb's Journal, select annotations, system and kernel source code, and executable binaries for select configurations. This CD-ROM is intended as a research and educational reference used to explore state-of the-art paradigms, choices, and trade-offs, as well as examine testbed implementations of these design choices. In addition, the collection of resources, articles, and other reference materials on this CD creates an informational programming resource that can be referred to again and again.
