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.

The Linux RUTE is an excellent manual, and it is free unless you want the printed manual. You can either download it and read it on your local system, read it online at one of the mirrors, or purchase the book.

Whichever of the Unices you find yourself working with the clearly written, concise, and well considered advice --based on decades of collective experience-- presented in this book is of unparalleled quality.
If you read and assimilate the contents of this book, you will not be a newbie for very long.
I bought the Red Hat Linux 7.2 Bible and it comes with the distro. It's about 1000 pages but I got the OS up an running by reading only the first 100 pages or so. You should be able to order it online at Amazon for about $39.00 US.
