Hi,
You are very welcomed here. I think the first thing is to install a Linux distribution and use it. There are many
possible choices but as usually the first is often the best. I don't advise you which distro to chose. There are many
information about Linux distributions - you will find what suit you best. Greetings.

I guess you are a desk support engineer supporting Windows workstation. If you are interested in the same job but for Linux workstations, try Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 or Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop 11. You should be able to download them from their websites (after registration).

There's a good general intro to Linux at about dot com. It's Ubuntu oriented, but quite well done.

There an excellent detailed primer here.

You could use a live Linux CD, for example Knoppix, as the first contact.
Knoppix is a Linux OS that you run the CD without installing it in HD. I mean, you boot from the CD
and the OS loads and in the end you will get an idea of the current Linux with graphical user interface.
There is also the Knoppix live DVD (with more complete programs).
