Smile Newb Literature

I was wondering if there are any real star/standout linux newb websites? It'd be cool if there were a website where I coule just go and sit down for a half-hour a day and learn something new about linux (something fundimental, not directly related to a particular problem) every day.
Does such a document exist?
Thank you.

An excellent resource for newbies to get familiar with the basic functions of linux. I still refer to it if I need a refresher on a certain command or function.

Very useful.

A document which got me started when I first entered the Linux world is Newbie's Linux Manual . Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the download link for the manual.

Another good place to look for Linux info is Fultus e-library .
