acid_kewpie is correct. By using Linux, you will learn what you need to know when you are ready to know it.

Here are some useful references for when you figure out what you want to do:

http://linux.about.com/. It's oriented to Ubuntu, but it's full of good info.

http://tille.garrels.be/training/tldp/. Machtelt Garrels Intro to Linux.

http://www.slackbook.org/. Slackware oriented, but excellent on the basics, such as file structure, permissions, and the like.

And here's a great podcast designed specifically for persons new to Linux:

Hi,

There are lots of levels linux competence. I believe that nowadays there are distros that do not require any special skills nor knowledge to use linux successfully. You really do not have to bother about what is happening behind the scenes and still be able to browse the web and play the movies.

If you want to learn the inner workings of Linux however, the world is yours. There are distros that make the low level learning easy, by not making any automatic magic on their behalf so you must do everything yourself and ultimately learn to do it right way. So the choice is yours. Do you want to be just a linux user or expert, there are distros available for both.
