It just seems like there is a lot of information to learn. Thx for your help!
Focus on learning howto use BASH! if you cant use it you will be lost the whole time.
when you learn howto use BASH start focusing on "/etc" which contains most configuration files, in these files you will do most things related to change.
Then learn howto deal with "/boot" with GRUB or Lilo. once this is done you couldlearn how the Kernel works, how to change it, update it and so fourth. Try to install a new kernel and configure it to fit your computer hardware and system needs.
MOST Important= bash && /etc.
