    Welcome to the forums, Jeremy!

    Take a look at LinuxCommand.org for working with Konsole/Terminal:

    LinuxCommand.org: Learn the Linux command line. Write shell scripts.

    You will find a lot of places on the net for Linux commands. I like this one for common commands. Also, have a look at many of the posts and threads here, as there are commands to get you familiar with doing all sorts of things. I'd start with using the 'cd' and 'ls' command just to get a feel for it. For instance, open konsole which will open inside your home directory, (you'll press enter after each command). To begin with, move to the Desktop:
    Code:
    cd Desktop
    Then do:
    Code:
    ls
    which will show you the files and directories there. to move back to the previous directory:
    Code:
    cd ../
    Again do:
    Code:
    ls
    ...which shows you what's in your home directory (where you started out) and so on.

    Don't be afraid to experiment. It's natural to feel a bit of trepidation and anxiety as it is a new undertaking in unfamiliar territory. I can remember how afraid I was at first. I'm no master of the command line by any means, but I've grown accustomed to it and now enjoy working with it. Once you get the feel for what you're doing, it won't seem difficult at all.

    EDIT: I see "Quick Draw" ozar has his six-shooters on tonight!
