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.

Hello all, please I need a mentor/tutor/guide on being a Linux system admin. Someone that can give a step by step guidance about how to and what to learn. I live in Lagos Nigeria and I have combed the city for a training center for any Unix based operating system and found none. So I decided to come to this forum. Thank you.

The traditional approach is to take a junior admin position at an organisation will give you training as you progress. You would have to convince a potential employer of your potential and dedication for this to happen.
Thank you vry much Shivaa, the link is very helpful.
Salasi.. Organisations that make use unix based operating systems are not that many around here and it will be every difficult to convince anyone to take me since i dont even have an educational background in computer so what i feel i can do is what i am trying to do now. Learn the basics on my own then i can now use that as a leverage when i have to apply in any organisation.
