Ah, there we're getting in to PRIMOS architecture (and, by implication, that of 
most UNIX variants).
 Ring 0 was the innermost ring, effectively the kernel, where you had to be 
extremely privileged to do anything at all.
 Most users executed in Ring 3.
 Ring 1 consisted mostly of interludes to allow less-privileged users access to 
kernal functions.
