Lightbulb You will need to find a good man...

Man page that is: a few key notes to get you off running:
1.
Grammar, it's not only a type of school, it's how you choose to represent yourself. Some people on these boards do not speak English natively, but they do still use the common language to the best of their knowledge and ability.

2.
Start with writing down a list of "good" questions for yourself. What things to you want to find out. I think most on here is of the hacker culture...we use Linux because it makes us think and grow. We value thinking and growing to a point that we appreciate the already-half-answered question much more deeply than something that can be "googled".

My story: When I first started, I was using Debian Sarge when it was testing, that was not that long ago but the sound didn't work like it did with Windows...and after that I was hooked. Google, these forums, and a few *nix books helped, but I wanted to learn it myself, and would only use LQ if I had exhausted my efforts. I was in it for the trying.

3.
Here are a few more questions to ask:
what is the "shell" and what does it do?
once you find that, learn just two commands to get you started:

1. man command
2. apropos command
1. will teach you about the command
2. will use the man pages to find the next piece of your puzzle, such as sound in my case.

Use red Hat, Play with it, if you put your home directory on a different partition, you can find out how many ways to hose your system and bring it back to life without trashing your progress. There are not kiddie gloves, no rubber stoppers on the door to prevent smashed fingers. The power, in all its complexity, is completely yours.

4.
What is "The Linux Documentation project" and what resources are at that site?

Some learning can be done very quickly, as in a good book, other knowledge can simply take time and effort. Learn both ways.
