    Linux Kernel 0.0.1
    For a long time I've been looking for the first source code of the Kernel. I feel as if I would better understand Linux if I could find it. Does anyone know where I could find it? I read that it's mostly Wrote in C. I've tried to work with the newest Kernel, there's just to much to try and work with. If anyone had a link or knows where I can FTP the Kernel Please let me know.
