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.

From my point of view (and I've voiced that ages ago) "true" hackers are selfsupporting and autonomous to the core, finding something of interest, digging in and unearthing the necessary nfo all by themselves (well, OK, with very few help). As such I think "real" hackers do not become hackers: they are. I'd second the "just go play around with GNU/Linux" idea, and if you find nothing of interest you can always become a distribution reviewer ;-p
There is a better angle to look at the system then hacking, probably you can look forward to contribute to the robustness of the security of the operating system rather then getting into hacking the same .
In short, for anything or everything for that matter you have to learn how the system works , the filesystem and its operation, then only a meaningful contribution is possible .
Go Ahead, try to learn how the shell and filesystem works
