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.

i've never posted anything due to busy work schedule, i'm new to linux, it was introduce to me by a friend of mine and its get me really interested, i would love to learn it from the very basic if you can help me out.
We can help you out with most (if not all) questions you might have with regards to Linux, of that I'm sure since the LQ community is the best one on the internet. But you'll have to put in the work if you're interested in learning. Start by reading, trying and getting your hands dirty. When you encounter errors or problems, post your question with as much detail as possible to get a complete answer.
Looking forward to your participation in the forums. Have fun with Linux.
what i would recommend would be to get a download of vmware and installing your choice of distros on a virtual machine. ubuntu is very similar to the look and feel of windows, and is very easy to pick up on, as is fedora. i prefer suse now, but it may change in a month or so. i've heard that slackware is really good, but haven't tried it. live cd's are a great way to learn as well, they boot the os to your computer without installing it. it gives you a chance to familiarize yourself before making the switch. good luck on your search for knowledge.
