Lightbulb Kernel Modules

Hi Guys, Great to be here

I wont call me a noob I am not a geek either. I`ve been using linux for more than three years
and know a thing or two about Linux. I want to strenghten my knowledge and have recently started tinkering with the kernel.
Now I am trying to build a lean kernel with the most basic support. I want support only for SATA, Ether and USB. Can anyone tell me which modules I can avoid during xconfig. I am also trying to undrestand more about how the kernel communicates with the hardware.

Eg. Which object files in the scsi driver folder contain info about how the OS communicates with the harddrive. How a read write is performed etc...

Can any one point me to a website or some with info on stuff like that.
Thanks in advance

BTW: Im using on a Fedora Core 4
