Cottontail OS Development Library
This is version 1.02; last updated on 10/1/2002
Welcome to the Cottontail OS Development Library. Here you will be able to download virtually any programming-oriented information that is available for computer hardware devices, processors, and operating system development. Need to write code for an ATA/IDE hard drive? How about a video or sound card? Ethernet or networking? We've got that. There are e-books, hardware reference manuals, programming guides, datasheets, and source code on nearly every subject imaginable.
If this is your first visit, may I invite you to read the
Manifesto and Statement of Purpose.
The entire Library is about 370MB. You can download it, or you can get it on CD. Two CD copies (in case one is a bad burn) of the current version of the Cottontail OS Development Library are available for $5.00, shipped anywhere in the continental U.S. International shipping may cost more. If you are interested in purchasing a CD, email me at NOfrankm29aSPAM-REMOVE@aol.com. I'll take payments via PayPal, which will help defray the cost of maintaining this website and the significant cost of shipping.
mid-8/2002 - documents are collected and indexed. A preliminary version is created with 359 entries.
8/27/2002 - version 1.00 is released (490 entries).
9/24/2002 - version 1.01 update complete. Went from 490 entries to 513. Added some development tools, miscellaneous programs, and Ralf Brown's Interrupt List to the Library. Also added 14 (!) 3Com ethernet documents I was not able to find anywhere. Special thanks to Joshua Shriver for digging them up for me.
10/2/2002 - version 1.02 update complete. Went from 513 to 542 entries. Added lots of ethernet documents, especially from AMD. A few sound, a few video, and a bunch of serial port-related PDF's round it out for now. Thanks to the osmaker for helping me find them, as well as the PCguts project for making them available.
Browse and Download
All 542 entries are grouped by topic(42)
or author(106). You'll need something like the
Acrobat Reader to view most of these.
WinZip helps too. Note that there are archived copies of both of these utilities under Topics->Misc. Utilities.

Want to give The Library a new title it doesn't have? Perhaps the complete
programmer's guide to the GEForce4? Remember, only send documents that are legal to copy freely. Send me an email.
Special thanks to Jay Doyle for hosting this site for me. Thanks also to Mike Rieker, Aaron Gray, Tim Robinson, Joshua Shriver, and the osmaker for contributing documents.
