Resurrecting the 8088 Micoprocessor

I've started a new project--building circuits around the Intel 8088 microprocessor.  I am unsure how far this will go, but the idea is to hit the basics such as addressing external memory, fetching instructions to execute, handling interrupts, managing I/O, and other essential needs for a PC.  I will assume that you don't have much of a background in digital circuits or computer design.  However if you are savvy with the aforementioned, I will assume that you are capable of skipping through.
