Step 0:  Decide *why* you want to contribute code.

Step 1:  Pick a particular part of the code that interests *you*.  If somebody
suggests (for instance) filesystems, but you aren't interested in them, the
result *will* be bad code.

(For example, most of what I do is just build and run a new linux-next kernel
every week or so, and report or fix anything that breaks on my Dell laptop)
