Lo there, very nice idea for an OS =]

I'd like to ask something.. I want to contribute (or attempt to) translate the website, however i dont know if there are certain instructions i must follow, or a file i should download and modify...

Also, is it easy to translate the actual OS or not? if so, i wouldnt mind giving it a try =]

Thanks, Keep up the good work.

its is simple to translate the os.
just extract kernel.zip onto your hd get flat assembler (http://flatassembler.net/)
and translate all the files you extracted (everything you have to translate is in a diffrent color, cant remember what color:p)
dont forget to save!
then build kernel.asm
the program will build kernel.com rename that to kernel.mnt and put it on your floppy.
you can translate most of the programs too but if i was you i would start whit that:p
btw in what language are you gonna translate it?

Thanks, i'll give it a try when i try it out. What about the website itself?

I can translate into Arabic, i'm not sure if i will run into problems with languages that don't use the Latin characters, such as Arabic, Chinese, etc... but hopefully it shouldn't be an issue.

But in Arabic? Yea, the site is small enough to do it quickly.. i would give it a try soon, and if its good, ill mail it to the webmaster.

Please excuse me for being slow in the head... but i'm a bit confused on something...

Say i open VGA.INC with Flat Assembler, and i get this line
shr edi,5 ; change from 4 to 1/8 BytesPerPixel

I get the actual assembly code in black, the variable in green, and the comments in grey. What is it exactly that you want me to translate? Just the comments (which are in grey)?

Thanks

you can translate the grey text but if you want to translate the operating system itself you have to translate olmost everything between ' ' or " "
