    See http://osdev.org
    Any particular reason you want to create your own OS instead of use one thats been in development for years?

    Making an OS is a pretty complicated task. Today when even mission critical commercial softwares are not made single handedly, what to say about OS?

    On top of it, you are new to programming. I would suggest you try contributing to Linux first instead of trying to write your own one. If you are comfortable and enjoy doing it, may be you can do it at some later time in life.

    To start with, get hold of some Linux distro (I would suggest Fedora or Debian) and have a good look at the code.
