Just go ahead and play with Linux. If you stumble upon any specific problems, ask here.

You might want to try out several distributions to learn about the differences.
For enterprise environments, CentOS would be a good start, as it is (simplified) the free version of Red Hat.
The other enterprise Linux is Suse, with OpenSuse as companion.
Debian is also a candidate.

Hi,

You may like to choose a particular distro as there are so many.
Here is a list of many distros LiveCD Download and just try. Whichever you feel is good for you, install the full version and work on that.
Good Luck!

I don't know how much 'Linux' you have

so will jump straight in with
http://www.tldp.org/LDP/nag2/

http://www.tldp.org/index.html


you should learn bash, both cli and scripting

http://www.gnu.org/s/bash/manual/
http://www.tldp.org/LDP/Bash-Beginners-Guide/html/
http://www.tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/
http://mywiki.wooledge.org/BashGuide

you will also what some awk, sed , maybe not so much grep
http://www.gnu.org/s/gawk/manual/gawk.html
http://www.gnu.org/software/sed/manual/sed.html
http://www.gnu.org/s/grep/manual/

Perl and/or Python # I should do one of these myself..
http://perldoc.perl.org/perl.html
http://www.python.org/doc/


The Links I offer are just to serve as introduction, as time goes by you can find others


Oh, I missed an obvious one for net admin

I would go for CentOS because it's Red hat enterprise linux without commercial support and RHEL is a popular distro for sysadmins who maintain a RHEL system. This should give you a sort of hands-on experience using RHEL.
