2. Using help and man pages
3. Joining a local Linux Users Group (LUG) and asking lots of quesitons
4. Frequenting various forums (including LQ), reading answers to other people's questions, and asking a lot of my own.
5. Trial and Error (including dumb errors, like reformating a whole hard drive instead of a single partition)
For me #2 not so much. Yes on all the others, especially #5
