Sorry this is not meant to be rude but what you wrote is barely understandable. Too many words no puctuation. There are no sentences. There are only a couple of commas and two question marks.
Earnestly wanted to help.

ricky - get a "test PC" - ie:- a setup, that is *not* 'normal use' machine,
it can be a desktop or a laptop, But- it Must be something that you can "play with".
without having to worry about crashing it / killing it / stuffing it completely . . . .

the use that remix cd - or any other 'live cd' and "just play around with it"
- that's the Best Way to Learn

- eventually - install that O/S to the "test hdd" - & "just keep playing with it".

- you can do this repeatabily - with anything that you come across.

I had the pleasure of having Ubuntu for 2 years and enjoyed it. Anyway this forum and the Ubuntu forum are good places you can go to for help.
