Anyone know of an assembler I could use to generate 486 and Pentium
code for Linux?

1. Assembly language on x86 linux box

I'm running linux and want to start writing assembly programs. I have a
few questions though:

1. I know C fairly well (ut not at an intricate level) so where can I find
information on how to learn assembly on the x86, including accessing hard
drives, peripherials (modems, network cards, etc)

2. Where can I find information regarding general architecture of x86's,
such as how it boots, what it looks for, a description of the BIOS.

Any books, pointers to web pages etc. is greatly appreciated. I guess I
just want to learn how to take advantage of a PC at a machine/assembly
language level, to understand how it works in great detail, and to try and
understand the organization of PC's. I would then like to try and write
some device drivers for some hardware I have, and hack some more kernel
code (I'm very limited in not understadning the whole PC as of now) Thanks
in advance.
