That's a LOT to learn. You could start with rute.2038bug.com/index.html.gz, then start reading the source codes if you really want, but it'd be a long(!) job.
I'd stick to being able to understand & use the cmds initially.
For filesystems you could start with 'man mkfs' and all the 'see also..' pages at the bottom of that .
Maybe you don't need to take that list of requirements too literally. They probably want you to be able to understand the concepts and use the cmds. The internals would take a while...

I would recommend the following 2 books, in order of importance


The Design and Implementation of the FreeBSD Operating System
http://www.amazon.com/Design-Impleme...8736131&sr=8-3

and

Designing BSD Rootkits: An Introduction to Kernel Hacking
http://www.amazon.com/Designing-BSD-...736131&sr=8-10



Be aware you are asking to learn what takes most 4-5 years of hard work to master in a short time. I wish you the best but I would not be to hopeful.

yes, I have found no better books to lean Unix type systems. While there are some differences, "Linux internals" books don't cover the material needed by the Op. Id highly recommend those books and I am fully aware that Linux is not Unix based, but Gnu is Unix like which makes the books accessible to both.

Some other good material for the Op can be found at The Linux Documentation project
