Re: Chapter Reviewers Sought

I am currently at work on a new edition of my textbook, Operating Systems: Internals and Design Principles. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to carefully read a chapter to check for technical errors, computational errors, and typos. In return, you will be acknowledged in the Preface and receive a free copy of the book when it comes out 2011. I would need feedback in about 6 to 8 weeks.
    This is a technical rather than a user book, so you need a technical background in this area. Chapters include

2    OPERATING SYSTEM OVERVIEW
3    PROCESS DESCRIPTION AND CONTROL
4    THREADS, SMP, and MICROKERNELS
5    CONCURRENCY: MUTUAL EXCLUSION AND SYNCHRONIZATION
6    CONCURRENCY: DEADLOCK AND STARVATION
7    MEMORY MANAGEMENT
8    VIRTUAL MEMORY
9    UNIPROCESSOR SCHEDULING
10    MULTIPROCESSOR AND REAL-TIME SCHEDULING
11    I/O MANAGEMENT AND DISK SCHEDULING
12    FILE MANAGEMENT
13    EMBEDDED OPERATING SYSTEMS
14    DISTRIBUTED PROCESSING, CLIENT/SERVER, AND CLUSTERS
15    DISTRIBUTED PROCESS MANAGEMENT



Please mention a special interest in one of these if you wish. The files are in PDF format. Thanks!
