Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Aha! Thank you so much. I actually got it. (after googling "subclause").
Since English isn't natural to me, it is difficult to distinguish the two. I did some online exercises, but I have to think real hard to know when to use what. So I'm not sure I dear use it, but hopefully. We'll see.
It's ok to never use whom, but you should know that when you listen to it, 'who' sounds out of place when used instead of 'whom'.
Well, actually, that's the deal with second languages. You can't always follow your intuition. Since I don't use it as an everyday language, I can't just talk and use whatever sounds right, because to me they both seem reasonable.
"My parents, whom I lived with the first 18 years of my life, ..."
What does "whom" refer to? To "My parents". So we replace whom with "my parents" and we get:
"I lived with my parents ..."
Here the subject of the sentence is not "my parents" but "I" so we use "whom".
Your example reminded me of a sketch from Not The Nine O'Clock News - Not The Parrot Sketch. This will tell you how to use "whom"
