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.

Is there some online linux learning school(course) that I (and also a friend of mine that wants to learn linux) can take for free?
Sort of like reading lots of material online, doing experiments at home, tests, correspondence?
That would be interesting and would but a bit more pressure on us to expand our OH-SO-Little knowledge.
Any links or suggestions will be appreciated.
there are lots of resources out there, google for a few will help.. and dare i say try and download some e-books from er,,, somewhere . most of them have excercises for you to complete and work you in to the operating system bit by bit.. youre not going to get a tutor for free, but if you can become your own tutor with some good books and the such you will go a long way
There are qualifications you can obtain in Linux, and these don't necessarilay need specialist training, however a decent course will help
don't know of any courses, but there are mountains of free docs online ready to be read. start with tldp.org and Rute's guide, check out the docs at redhat.com, mandrake, etc. and keep reading threads here at LQ of course.
Welcome friends in the world of linux. It is certainly exciting and interesting.
First choose distributor about which u want to start it, i recommend red hat 9 is better. Its installation is very much easy and user friendly.
Thanks for all the replies. It was not really for me, but people I want to each linux to that are "linux illitarate". I use google and LQ mostly and distrowatch of course and a lot of others as well. I'm pretty sur that there are more sites for linux than for winbloze. Just my two cents.
