    Wow, I'm becoming popular...

    I don't know how in depth your knowledge is, or how much access you have to a Linux system, but here's how I found my way through (roughly):

    I started @ Wiki... Great site, altough not in depth: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_kernel

    That sparked my intrest, but wasn't enough. Then I went over to the Linux side project, The Linux Documentation Project, a project which only purpose is to document Linux.

    Nowadays, I just try to understand the source (located in /usr/linux on my Gentoo workstation, or available at kernel.org) for specific knowledge. Also, a good knowledge place is the kernel.org mailing list, and dev mailing list (however, expect > 300 mails / hour so pick some subjects on which you want to gather knowledge).

    Hope that helps.

    ok ive read what was on the wikipeida page, and a couple thou googleing, as for linux access pretty much whenever im at a pc (excluding the tech computers, but i have my laptop then anyway). i think i had a look at tldp but they seemed rather outdated but then again for what im wanting probly wouldnt make much of a difference. 300 emails an hour i dont think i could handle that lol
