I am preparing a class on Networking. I need to cover how each PC look for a IP in the nework, how this request go through the interface card, the network driver. And how the IP translate to Hardware address. use ARP or what? I need to have a clear picture of how this request work.

Do you know which book or where I can have any information on this?

This RFC gives a very good explanation of how the IP layer works.  It goes into ARP as well as other aspects of the TCP/IP suite.

In addition here is another link that doesn't go into as much detail, but has some useful information.
