A better understanding!

I am trying to understand how my slackbox runs. From boot up to the kernel and modules and how information travels inside (networking sockets, etc...). Just a better overall understanding.
I have skimmed through TLDP but the howto's and guides only tell you how to do something; I want to know why.
Maybe a graphical representation of a working linux box would help (I tend to learn better with images and visual aids). Basically where does everything fit in (CLI, Xfree, KDE, other window managers).

Any suggestions on where to look for this information; I can't seem to find any.
