Assuming that you already have some experience with Linux, you will want to read some books. One good place to start is the O'Reilly website.

manual pages - take a look

Let me explain to you - The manual pages have information about everyting relevant to the basic gnu userland programs and also pointers to information about the linux kernel. Type man man and you will see a whole section on the system call interface to the linux kernel. They are a essential starting point and provide links to related topics that might be helpful.
To suggest otherwise is rather bohemian - isn't it?

Man pages are good when one has specific questions. For a general picture of what's going on, a book is much better. I myself have found this one http://lwn.net/Kernel/LDD3/ especially useful.

I am exceedingly familiar with the man pages. I have never, however, seen anything that relates to kernel development. Perhaps you could give an example?

You'll certainly want to be familiar with C programming if you wish to get into kernel development.

you can try reading some books - The Design of the Unix Operating System was the one that Linus Torvalds read when he was starting to program Linux, so you can try that maybe? It was by I think, Maurice Bach.
