man pages help


Hi
I am new to linux and i am studying linux device drivers. I am using FEDORA 9. I am not able to get the man pages for the device driver system calls.

i want to get man pages which give information about the data structure

struct file_operations
struct file

and other related datastructures their member function pointers and explanation.

How can i get it.

I've never seen device driver man pages. It is time to start reading and becoming very familiar with the kernel source Documentation, under your kernel source tree /usr/src/linux/Documentation.

That's RedHat's RPMS directories.
