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.

I'm a windows admin and i'm looking to learn something new.
I wanted to set up my old AMD machine as a music, web, and file server, wap gateway, and router. I already have one running with windows but i wanted to try something new.
Both linux and freebsd will do what i need it to do. I'm just not sure which one to choose. I don't mind searching and reading up on what i need to get it running, i just wanted some opinions on which way to proceed.

i recommend debian linux. not as hard anymore ( nothing like its ill-deserved rep of being hard to install )
debian is a great server distro.
but then linux is linux. almost any distro will do what you want.
I used redhat for a bit back in 2000 and learned some unix basics in school but never anything concrete. I just wanted to try my hand at something other than windows. Playing with the registry is a little tired for me.
I have about 5 linux distros sitting at home but i haven't had time to test them all out yet. Tonight after class i'm going to play around with SUSE, or at least try to.
Thanks for the distrowatch link slacker, i'm on it now. Great site!

None is singular in English, not plural. For that reason "none of them knows" , much like nobody knows.
Sorry again for lesson
Hey i doubt marcus aurelius read any oxford reference books. That's unpossible!
I just copied and pasted the quote, I didn't stop and correct it for grammar! I had heard linux users were a serious bunch..........
