    See the general Linux tutorials on this site and read the following tutorials:

    Guide for people new to linux command line
    Common chmod's
    KDE basics with some Tips and Tricks (Only if you are using KDE)
    HOWTO - Install Software [README]
    Linux File Permissions
    Running X programs as root

    and google is also very helpful.

    The Linux cookbook! Covers a lot of topic in some detail. I bought it, and found it very useful.

    yes indeed, that is an excellent book. my dad bought one to help himself understand linux better. but most of the topics can be found using a few google searches, but they won't be as clearly explained as in the book.

    @ ayanstein: So I suggest you buy this book as well.

    try and make it do something, and you will learn a lot along the way!

    For instance, today, I have turned an old pc (AMD K6-2 500Mhz) into a headless media server / jukebox. It starts up and uses mplayer in the command line to play various play lists or a random selection. It also uses festival to let me know which play list it is playing etc...

    So think of something cool that would be good to do and do it!
