Re: Help! University Project
Personally I would design something close to the old Univac Octal based architecture, using the extra bits to include some modern and useful items. Of course you are thinking assembly language here, not sure how many Grad Students today get involved in that, normally they are more worry about OSGi, OSx or other more salient issues of our time. However, if you do it corretly you will learn a lot and have basic understanding of how things like VMWare work. I assume you are writing this in C? Good luck, kind of sounds like it might be over your head, good chance to learn.
