Well, good!
Pick up a distro, let's say slackware :-) and read around
Install it, work with it, play, listen to music, watch some grate movies...

LQ is the best website... If you MUST try something else, try

But first, install Linux and start using it. I recommend the Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Mepis, family (all based on Debain)

Anything in the top ten on the "hit list" at will be fine.

I have to push Slackware too, I installed it with literally zero knowledge of Linux this past Christmas and now feel extremely comfortable with how Linux works. HOWEVER, my big disclaimer: prepare to spend a LOT of time on the internet and especially on LQ (I found answers to nearly all my questions here); make really good friend with google; and try to have another "backup" computer with an internet connection. Good luck with your Linux experience, I hope it's as positive for you as it was for me!

Indeed. All distros lead to Slackware. Might as well save time, eh?

Here's a beginner, intermediate, advanced class...entirely online.

And there are lots of free ebooks here. Look under Unix/Linux and then Core Linux for some books.

I am going to push Vector Linux, since it's very fast, easy to install, and works out of the box with things like Java, Flash, etc.
