Well im not too good with asm, I mean I can write a few things in asm for DOS but only simple stuff. I have the bootloader, and it loads up the kernel, though it doesnt do anything. I was wondering if someoen can help me get some of the basic functions coded in asm so that I can code the kernel in C. Such as something to print text and such. (btw, its in protected mode 32bit)

One of my friends showed me something like this for printing text, but I still dont know how to implement that into a function to be used in C
(this is nasm btw)
Code:
        ORG   0xFF800000

        BITS 32

SEGMENT .data
message db "Message Here",0

SEGMENT .text
start:
        mov     edi, 0xB8000
        mov     esi, message
        mov     ah, 7           ;Text attribute
.again: lodsb
        stosw
        test    al, al
        jnz     .again

        jmp short

This shows how to go from boot to c based kernel. If you look at the first tutorial, http://www.osdever.net/tutorials/brunmar/tutorial_02.php?the_id=18, it shows how and what to do to get into protected mode.
