Best way to learn Linux from the command line

I think I might be setting up another Linux box and would like to install slack on it but I want to do everything from the prompt. Actually I probably won't have a choice with slack. Are there any online resources or books that give in depth information re: linux from the command line.?

As always, thanks.

Have a look at RUTE and the Linux Newbie Administrator's Guide also don't forget to read the man pages.

And of course, check the install docs on the Slackware Site.
