Install the kernel sources. Install the books rpm.
Start reading a LOT. The books it installs are:
"Linux Installation and getting started" - Matt Welsh
"Linux Programmers Guide" - Sven Goldt and Sven van der Meer
"Linux Network Administrators Guide, Second Edition" - Olaf Kirch and
"Linux System Administrators Guide" - Lars Wirzenius
"Linux Users Guide" - Larry Greenfield
"Linux Kernel 2.4 Internals" - Tigran Aivazian and "The Linux Kernel
Module Programming Guide" - Ori Pomerantz
All in /usr/share/doc/Books
Next start reading /usr/src/linux/Documentation
I do not want to diacourage you. It might just be better to start with
things you can comprehand, like the sourcecode for smaller program.
