Linux terminology
 
Are there any books on Linux terminology, abribiations, shortcuts etc.
Im not a very technical person. For exemple I didnt know what LILO was.
Some things in books and this forums seem like chinese to me. I am so use to just clicking to me something happen and get around in the computer.

Thanks for your help.

Books like Running Linux or Linux in a Nutshell (both from O'Reilly) are pretty good books for getting started. If there is an a term you don't know a google search is probably as good a method as any to find the meaning.

If your looking for keyboard shortcuts and whatno then check out the documentation for which ever user interface (eg. Gnome, KDE, ect.) you use and I'm sure they will include the default keybindings.

Linux in a nutshell is good for reference... but probably not best for learning. Look for the Linux Bible. Published by Wiley. That's my suggestion. You can probably find 2 page manuals online as well that are good for really early learning.
