    I think MINIX is what you're looking for, especially since it's usually included as part of Dr. Tanenbaum's book http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004S81RUC/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_1/184-3489099-2998357?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_r=1F5XJJ5FVMK90HKCYHPQ&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_p=486539851&pf_rd_i=0136386776 the cover may seem ridiculous, but the book and the OS is great for educational purposes

    Linux projects usually have great documentation and there are 'small' OSs. Puppy is small in size, easy to install and there is a place to start reading http://puppylinux.org/main/Overview%20and%20Getting%20Started.htm
