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.

These sites will help in your quest for information. If you have a specific question, come back here and do a search first. You might find the answer quicker with a search. If you can't find the answer, then ask away, and someone should be able to help. In my sig below, there are some sites to help you learn about linux commands.
I am new to Linux too, I found a lot of good info at this site. http://linuxbeginner.org/
There is a "Newbie Top Ten Commands" article that is both amusing and informative that might help get you started.
