I want to have a COMPLETE reference on linux.
Precisely:
 1. the boot up process and the files linux looks into
    for configuration step-by-step.
 2. the configuration files for X, profiles, networks,
    user, lilo, sound etc. and how they are looked into
    and referenced by the kernel and other configuration
    scripts.

there are some good pdf-manuals available here:

http://metalab.unc.edu/LDP/ldp.html

they are about 300 pages each, so most linux topics are covered.

A comprehensive set of documentations can be found in your Linux CD. If you are using Redhat, look for the /doc directory ... this will save your of telephone bills.

A comprehensive book does not exist.  :-)

You can find much info in the LDP guides (ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/docs/LDP).

Good luck :-)
