making sense of /proc for 2.4.x kernel?

Can someone point me to good sources of documentation for making sense of the wealth of information in /proc filesystem for 2.4.x kernel? I mean, some pieces of information in there are labeled (and self-explanatory) but mostly they are just a bunch of numbers. I need documentations to tell me what those numbers mean!
