Hello friends,its been a long time i post whatever problems i have in Ubuntu forums. I am a linux user since 3 yrs. Now its time that i should do some coding,also for the community and my engineering is complete. I read one or two Linux kernel programming books Wrox and one more. But when i look at the kernel code,its seems preety different than what i have learned. Everybody knows linux development speed shoots off the roof. But under such circumstances,people like me are in trouble. So what should i do now. I am more interested in Filesystems,process management,and other core OS stuff. Do reply..thanks...

The one and only requirement is the ability to read : http://www.faqs.org/docs/kernel/.
