    I strongly suggest the book From Bash to Z Shell: Conquering the Command Line It's an absolutely excellent book that really helped me get used to using the command line.

    They say that using Slackware Linux is an excellent way to learn Linux.

    You can also find a nice tutorial on
    http://www.linux.org/lessons/

    I used it and in 2 days you handle the basic linux commands very well.

    And then if you have a problem or you want to make something work, you just google for it. I always find a solution. Sometimes it takes a while but I think you learn more that way.
    It's also handy to keep a Linux-notebook to write down how you did some things
