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.

quite a huge jump from not having any linux expereience to doing kernel projects, but at the most basic level... just use it. Pick a distribution like Mint, and the more you decide to look under the covers to find out how it's working, the more you will learn.
i want to do some projects on linux kernel.
since i m new to linux os, plz help me by suggesting that how to start with linux i.e. how do i learn linux os basic from scratch.
If you have done kernel projects in other OSs, you should read books about the Linux kernel, driver writing and the like. Read the FAQ at http://kernel.org or use https://www.kernel.org/doc. If you haven't, first spend a few years learning about Linux in general and read books about operating system design.
I have used Ubuntu to start with Linux, however most of us agree that to start learning Linux , the better approach would be to use mint/centOS. Also I would suggest to refer to some study material for basic Linux commands and basic architecture (specially if you coming from Windows world)
Kernelnewbies is a community of aspiring Linux kernel developers who work to improve their Kernels and more experienced developers willing to share their knowledge.
Kernelnewbies can be found on the MailingList, IRC (irc.oftc.net #kernelnewbies), the web forum and this wiki.
Kernel.org would be another good site;
The Linux Kernel Organization is a California Public Benefit Corporation established in 2002 to distribute the Linux kernel and other Open Source software to the public without charge. We are recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)3 private operating foundation.
