Look here, it raises some points that I'd otherwise have to type. :)

http://www.daniweb.com/software-development/computer-science/threads/4894/designing-an-operating-system[^]

Best place to go is probably the Linux kernel site, http://www.kernel.org/[^]

this will help as well

http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/[^]


Understand, even when all the source is available, it's a complex task to build and create a working operating system!

One more resource is the book "Operating Systems: Design and Implementation 3/e" by Tanenbaum. This guides you through the innards of an operating system called Minix3[^]

(Note: I have no first hand experience with either the book or Minix itself, but I see good reviews of that book).
