There is no such think like Linux 9.0 or Linux 9.4. You have to tell us what specific distribution, for example Ubuntu, Fedora, ..., you are using.

Have a look on your distribution's website: all the good ones have a guide to installation.

download iso , burn disk, follow prompts as it installs, youll learn about what ever distro your using by installing it.
to choose a distro try a live disk theres nothing wrong with installing from the disk if you like it.

Here are some links that might help; the About dot com one would be a good starting place:

http://linux.about.com/. It's oriented to Ubuntu, but it's full of good info.

http://tille.garrels.be/training/tldp/. Machtelt Garrels Intro to Linux.

http://www.slackbook.org/. Slackware oriented, but excellent on the basics, such as file structure, permissions, and the like.
