Network Architecture Entry Point


I'm interested in learning linux kernel networking. Therefore, I read a
book named "Understanding the Linux Kernel". Then, after reading it,
now I want to trace the source code directly (i.e., networking) to see how it gets to work. However, I have no idea where is the starting point like start_kernel() function of bootstrap for me to commence. Would anyone simply to tell me where it is? Or where is the point where the kernel brings up the
nic or the whole network subsystem?

I appreciate any suggestion, sincerely.
