atmega 32 bootloader

i want to make an arduino bootloader for atmega32 as my project, but i dont know how to start, i have done several projects on microcontrollers using avrstudio 4. i have lots of time to start with basics, can anybody tell me where can i learn things about bootloader and what should be my approach.
