Thousands of sites.

Typically for any concept if you do a web search for "concept tutorial" you can find a lot.

For example doing "Linux Tutorial" returned many hits including this one that claims to be where you learn linux:

Welcome to the forum!

Don't be afraid to experiment with Linux: that's how you learn. So long as you make a backup of any file before altering it, you can always recover from accidents.

If you're interested in the technical side of things (and, contrary to what some people think, Linux users don't have to be), this is a good place to start. I know it's 10 years old, but it's still worth looking at for the basics:

linux made easier

I like MensaWater's link. These things, I think, are known as hubs and make money for the creator. That aside experiment "Linux" bis not that difficult, really.

Here are three useful links for starters:

http://linux.about.com/. It's oriented to Ubuntu, but it's full of good info.

http://tille.garrels.be/training/tldp/. Machtelt Garrels Intro to Linux.

http://www.slackbook.org/. Slackware oriented, but excellent on the basics, such as file structure, permissions, and the like.

The rute link is good, also a quick read here http://linux.oneandoneis2.org/LNW.htm is recommended.
Also http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...ers_index.html
