What you should do next would depend a great deal on your current skill level. Have you ever installed or managed a server of any kind? How much do you know about networks?

Oh, and welcome to LQ.

thank you Miati, Olmy

Yes I have installed and configured a few servers but mostly NT servers but Linux. my goal is to get a good handle on on this OS and than get certified.
I will review the links below and comeback with some questions.

Thanks

Maybe tell us something about this IT knowledge you have at present. Do you have any experience in say, Networking?

Various Linux Guides I have collected. is my humble addition to what will be a huge list of user-supplied reading material.

Another JJ.

Everyone has their own learning style, but for me, I read up on Unix [sic] and then Linux, and then I installed Linux and started using it. A little bit of knowledge, a lot of practise, and a desire to learn more. That's my prescription.

Pick something you want to do on a computer. Do it with Linux. Then repeat.

As you get things done, you will learn about the OS along the way.

Also, in amongst the cat videos, you can find lots of tutorials on YouTube. Some of them are quite well done. (Some, natch, are worthless.)
