I worked on a hobby OS a while back, and I had a lot of fun doing it. You might want to take a look at Bona Fide OS Development. They have a lot of documents and links that were very useful. They also have an OS dev book listing with reviews.

If you're serious about OS dev, I highly recommend The Indispensable PC Hardware Book by Hans-Peter Messmer. It is somewhat dated, but it is really _the_ best hardware book I have ever bought. It has a lot of information that's hard to find on the internet or hidden in the middle of huge whitepapers.
