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.

You will only learn by using it!!!
I started using linux in 1998 - redhat. When i NEEDED to do something , i looked it up and eventually everything fell together. I also recommed you invest in one good book. I bought a book called 'Using Linux' over a decade ago and its the best 18 bucks i spent cause i still refer to it from time to time.
I would recommed you run ONLY linux because if you have a dual boot system and run windows xp etc - you will always be tempted to use the easy solution. I had that problem for a long long time and would always boot into windows - sometimes it would be months before i went back to linux.
Linux is not hard - it just takes a bit more time and thought but thats the beauty of it!
