The question is what do you know well and what do you want to do? Do you
want to work on sounds cards, network cards, or RAID. Their is so much so
so take your pick. Perhaps you already understand away a sub system works
like say VFS so start there. If not ask on a mailing list devoted to one
of these sub sectionsonce you decided what you want to do. Don't be afraid
to ask questions.
