    Read, read, read! There's loads of documentation out there. Experiment. If you've had a bit of experience already, don't go for an obviously newbie-friendly distro like Ubuntu or Mint; try Debian instead. Then later you might want to go on to Slackware, Gentu or Crux.

    Learn to use the command line interface. Start by using it for file management - it's incredibly fast compared with a graphical file manager. Then try it for other things.

    Ask basic questions. How does a Linux system actually start up (hint: read the init scripts)? How does the GUI work? What are libraries and how do library dependencies work? Google your question and read the documents you are led to.

    And you can always ask questions here. We are a friendly bunch and you won't get flamed.
