I don't think he does. There's no "mount xinu" book as far as I can tell. The original Xinu book came out twenty years ago, and (IIRC) about fifteen years ago it was revised and split into two volumes. It's been out of print for a long, long time, but you can still get paperback on-demand laser-printed "facsimile" versions for $90. -- Grant Edwards grante Yow! With YOU, I can be at MYSELF...

The original poster didn't mention they were new to OS principles. I'd not recommend Labrousse's book for an OS novice. The original poster only mentioned something on RTOS.
