I found the book 'guide to Unix Using Linux' by Micheal Palmer, Jack Dent, and Tony Gaddis. This was a text book from one of my Linux classes. read it from cover to cover. Actually skip to the section on partitioning, and installing. Then you've got a system to practice the commands with.
Another thing to do is get cozy with the man, info, and help of each command. Have a pad and pencil handy. Write the synopsis, syntax, and options for the commands you come accross.
Finally, search around forums like linuxquestions.org. Your own distro's forum will help too.
Need help installing, IM me at yahoo or msn messangers.
