Hi,

You can start by installing Linux distro in your PC. Then try to install things, gather some interest on them and you will know how to use linux soon. This is the way I learnt (learning) linux.

First I'd take a look at the official documentation of the Linux you chose to install on your system, then you can take a look at
http://rute.2038bug.com/index.html.gz
http://linuxcommand.org/tlcl.php
http://www.tldp.org
Hope this helps.

Three more good ones:

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

http://tille.garrels.be/training/tldp/. Machtelt Garrels's Intro to Linux. I printed it out and still have it on my bookshelf. If had to pick the one book that helped me the most when I was new, this would be it.

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