Really More Practical than Other Book
I can got kernel module and system call interface by some modifing examples. Though this book if for SCO Unixware, I could apply to my Solaris 2.x system and got wanting result.
The text and example of this book are more practical than any other "Unix Internal ..." books to me.
You can get real imformation about Unix kernel and test your understand. But, it may take some time if you test them at other Unix except SCO Unixware. I did.

good, but beware!
This book explains the internals in great detail but is still easy to follow. Quite a lot of examples are also provided ( eg. a ps - like command ). But this book is written for SCO and is only limites applicable to other platforms! So beware!
