    There's an O'Reilly book called Unix System Programming that you might try.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    If you are REALLY interested in true real-time programming in a Posix-compliant system, get QNX (now owned by RIM) Neutrino. They have tonnes of documentation, how-tos, and such to get you up to speed. It is a truly deterministic operating system used for many real-time applications ranging from fighter-jet avionics to nuclear reactor control systems. I've used it since it first came out on the x86 processor family in 1982, and have delivered many applications into various manufacturing industries from automotive to medical device to semiconductor fabs, as well as to the US Navy, based upon the QNX operating system. I still use it, even though most of my work is with Linux these days.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    You can find out more about QNX here: QNX Realtime Operating System (RTOS) software, middleware, development tools** and services for superior embedded design - and you can also download an evaluation copy from them. They support most microcontrollers and CPUs, and were one of the founders/contributors to the Eclipse CDT - C/C++ programming plugins. It also runs nicely in a VirtualBox virtual machine.
