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.

Is there a step by step for know nothings? Most material for reading that I find assumes at least a very basic understanding of the subject matter, but I do not have that beginning knowledge or terminology.
I want to patiently assimilate all Linux information instantaneously. But, I will settle for one question at a time. For instance, the manual I am reading is huge (ruteLinuxGuide). Is there a condensed version?
Big question: Is there a Linux server that will operate inside Windows, so I can begin minor hands-on server work? This is the goal, after all: Server stuff for the family business, since my brother just does not have the time to do it himself, or the money to pay someone else to do it for him (I already cost too much for a new business).
