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.

I've wanted to install linux for a while, but couldn't figure out how to do it. I was thinking is there a busines that you can send your ps3 to that will back up memory, upgrade hard drive & install ydl,or any other linux.
For the price you would pay there are laptops from vendors with Ubuntu already installed. Also, there are a lot of posts about PS3s. I don't own a PS3, but if it has a CD/DVD drive, you can use a live CD of Ubuntu and image the hard drive to a USB drive. (Buying the necessary equipment should be cheaper than having someone do it for you.)
You don't have to pay somebody to install linux on your PS3, nor should it be too difficult for you to change the RAM or HDD. Look at this list of linux live-cds and find one that boots on a PS3 and try it out.
Google and find your place in the flock of the crazed who already have moded and run linux on their machines and are eager to share their plans, advice, and schemes to the furtherment of linux on the PS3.

Being lazy is a good motivation for programmers to write programs that make life easier. Unfortunately, system installation is something that needs personal efforts.
With enough money you will found someone soon enough to do the job. Maybe simply check out your local computer dealer or some geek at the local university. Make the job very rewarding in terms of money - to the amount of your laziness.
Paying for Linux installation isnt a good idea unless it is a dedicated web server or similar in terms of production costs and down time costs. If you still want someone else do it for you the first place you should look out for is the local Linux Users Group in your city.
They will happily help you and may not charge the money. But they would definitely like to see some contribution from your side as well.
