Welcome to FreeBSD! Probably you'll want to read _The Design and
Implementation of the FreeBSD Operating System_ by McKusick, et al.
ISBN 0-201-70245-2. It came out two months ago. Another good book is
_Porting Unix Software_ by Lehey ISBN 1-56592-126-7. It's from 1995 and
out of print, but you can get it used from for US$2.00 and
well worth the read.
For additional references, you may want to ask on the hackers@ list.
