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.

where can i go to try get as much info as possible about linux commands? im not particularly looking at a certain distro, just info on the commands and what they do. the distros i mainly use are ubuntu, kubuntu, suse and fedora.
i like http://www.howtoforge.com/
If you click on the Ubuntu section you can find a some interesting articles for stuff that you can do with Ubuntu.
There is a lot of guides and examples in the site. commands don't mean anything if you don't understand a little of the kernel, filesystem, boot processes theories...so i recommend reading some Shell, boot ...etc theory's http://www.linux.ie/newusers/beginners-linux-guide/
The web is full

Reason: just because i like to edit
If you want basically just the printed 'man' pages get "Linux in a nutshell" there are a few extras but the bulk of it is the 'man' pages.
The price on my books says it is $45. DO NOT PAY THIS MUCH FOR IT. I got mine at Fry's for $15 with a $15 mail in rebate. Yes it was the older volume but the core commands rarely go completely out of date.
