Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm a super newbie to linux and bought 4.0 and i'm noticeing ya are being forced to buy stuff like crossover to utilize programs like photoshop and so on I'm wanting to get away from BILLS BULL but still need some win based programes for my work and I'm still haveing a hard time downloading most of the crossover stuff. Any body got some HELP for me it would be greatly appriciated.
4.0? what's that then?? what kind of help do you want? crossover office is by far the best way to get those sorts of apps running. personally i do fine with gimp instead of photoshop, there's also a version of gimp called gimpshop which is designed to mimmick photoshop as much as possible.
If you don't want to pay for Crossover, you can use WINE---same thing but free (and missing the nice GUI interface)
We are getting very close to the point where Linux has equiavalents for enough things that you will not need to run Windows SW. As an aside, one thing that rankles me is that some Windows apps required IE to be present. Thus, you need to install IE using WINE or Crossover. To be legal, you need a license---which sort of defeats the whole reason to escape Windows.
