[Q] How does fastboot work?

I'm trying to figure out how fastboot works. I guess it unpacks the .img files into their designated partitions right (another tactic would be to unpack them every time on powerup, but that doesn't make much sense)?
Generally, Is there a good place to get information about android internals (architecture/design documents).

Thanks a lot,
Oren
