Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I want to learn the architect of a printer driver in Linux, particularly, the spooler system and spooling? What Linux components are invloved in spooling? Is there any kernel document to clarify the subject?
I think that apart from printk's the kernel has no notion of printing in general, spooling or printer drivers.
Maybe you should look for say IPP protocol docs, CUPS development docs and the CUPS source code.
Thank you for the replies. CUPS technology has a book but it is not free, moreover I noticed spooling task is not a kernel duty(because of that we hardly find any file connected with the word, "spool", inside kerenl) and it is handled by a user process daemon and the daemon calls parallel port device driver inside kernel. Please let me know if I am correct.
