Hi:

If you like to read these are pretty good books to learn from.

-The Ubuntu Linux Bible
- Red Hat Linux Bible

If you don't want to purchase those books your local library may have to borrow.

http://debian-handbook.info/

http://www.youtube.com/user/nixiedoeslinux

Best wishes to you learning Linux!

So far you've created two "starting with RHCE" threads and two "starting with Linux" threads. In my humble opinion you should start with Linux user basics (RHEL and CentOS do come with proper documentation) and only after you understand those Linux admin basics. Most importantly understand there's no shortcut for gaining knowledge: reading and practicing is what works.

With all due respect but no. Video tutorials may be all the rage but they won't help if you don't understand Linux basics and they won't bail you out when you need the quick fix you get from manual pages and other standard documentation.

If you're still looking for a distro to use, you might want to take a look at Lubuntu. It's a pretty lightweight UI if you have older hardware.

NOTE: you will most likely need a DVD, the ISO doesn't completely fit on any CDs I have.
