Welcome, jxcarter.

There's a good basic tutorial at about dot com. It's oriented towards Ubuntu, but has a lot of great information.

I recommend Machtelt Garrels Introduction to Linux for a detailed primer.

There's loads of stuff at www.linuxtopia.org

Be aware that the difference between various 'distros' (distribution: www.distrowatch.com) can make a difference.
Can you tells us which distro or version you are going to use?
