Could somebody give me detailed informations about the topics "mbr", "boot sector" and "partition table". I´m interested in programming a new little OS to learn about the system. And to reach a higher state in the world of computer-programming. My favourite languages are assembler and a little bit C++. My operating-systems are Win98, WinNT and SuSE-Linux 6.4!

This tends to be the sort of stuff where to borrow from Rolls Royce...."if you have to ask, you probably can't do it."...  I would respectfully suggest that that is not a great way to reach a "higher state".   I would recommend you spend mtime doing productive things in C++, you will find your self much more marketable as a programmer.  A typical book on OS design will give you more information about OS workings than you will ever need to know.

This from a assembly multitasking system author turned C++ programmer.
