Where can I learn about file systems?

I'm looking for a resource that can teach me about how file systems are structured and how they store data at a reasonably in-depth level.
I've been teaching myself how to use the Sleuth Kit/Autopsy
combination, but I occasionally bump into the limits of what I know about, say, the differences between how a FAT-formatted disk is structured compared with a NTFS disk.
I feel like I'm familiar enough with this stuff to get by, but if I'm presented with a list of information about a disk image there'll be too much that I don't know. Any good resources would be greatly appreciated. Bonus points if they're free, but I'll certainly consider books as well. I've got access to Windows, OS X and Linux, just in case that makes any difference.
