One other thing I forgot to recommend - and this is to *everyone* who 
wants to know more about how Linux really works - is to try Linux From 
Scratch (http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/)

It is basically a book with instructions and links to all the source 
that explains how to build a complete Linux operating from scratch. It 
is a brilliant learning tool. It should be on every school's teaching
