Hey everyone,

For the readers of our OS Development Series, as you may know, Tutorial 17 will soon be taken down to be replaced by two new tutorials.

The new tutorial 17 covers physical memory management including...<ul>
<li>Physical Memory
<li>Translation Lookaside Buffer (TLB)
<li>Memory Management Unit (MMU)
<li>Memory Managers
<li>Bios and CMOS: Abtaining RAM information
<li>Passing information from bootloader to kernel. This uses the multiboot spec information structure
<li>Designing and developing a physical memory manager
</ul>The physical memory manager that is developed will help us keep track of physical memory, allocate, deallocate, and manage different regions of physical memory.

This tutorial should be up later today so I decided to post this announcement now.

Please let me know what you think of it, changes, suggestions, improvements, or any generic questions that you may have :)

I will be keeping the old Tutorial 17 for now until it is replaced with Tutorial 18: Virtual Memory Management.

I think it was a great idea to change the current Tutorial 17.

While it was interesting and informative, it jumped over memory management where it shouldn't have done.

This new format seems much better - Cant wait for the tutorial to be up,
