Sounds like "Operating Systems 101" homework to me :)

Get a copy of "The Design and Implementation of the 4.4 BSD Operating
System" by McKusick et all.

In "Unix Internals: the new frontiers" by Vahalia there is some info
about BSD, but it is not BSD-specific. Both of them are very good
books about Unix Internals.

For something more up-to-date, Use the Source, Luke.
