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 newbie in the linux world!
And i' also i have no knowledge about how to build a personal webpage, but I'd like to make one!
is there any tutorial or documentation about how to make webpages using linux?
The OS is fairly irrelevant. HTML is HTML no matter the OS. What you need is a guide to "Editors that Rock!". Which there isn't one, that I know of. But there are plenty of people that will share their favorite editor.
My Two Cents
vi is a good editor. Command line based, takes some getting used to. Does syntax highlighting. Probably not the ideal editor for someone who doesn't like the command line.
Kate is also a good editor in KDE. Nice GUI, fairly easy to learn. Also works with Perl, Shell scripts, PHP, and various other languages.
Quanta is the best editor in KDE I've used yet. Great GUI, easy to learn. Has some bug checkers in it. Nice attribute tree pane. Highly recommended.
Now if you want to get into running a web server in linux, that's a whole other thing. There are several servers out there, but the most popular is Apache. There are lots of sites around to help you install and configure it.
I would vote for gedit or nedit. I have used nedit a lot in creating my own web pages. You can create very useful macros in it and once you get used to its operation it is very flexible and almost (!) fun to use.
I have never yet found a WYSIWYG HTML editor that I could stand for more than a few minutes because every one I've tried (probably half a dozen) have been so SLOOOOW. And also, what I saw was NOT what I got! So what use were they?
I put nedit on the same workspace as the browser, and then all I have to do is save my HTML file, ALT+TAB to the browser, hit "refresh" on my webpage (local copy, that is), and voilą, there's my result in my browser. It becomes reflexive after a bit, and a fast way to create a page.
