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.

Try the redhat-bible or something like that. Although, this one is specially for red-hat, it will certainly give you a very good impression of the basic linux-things (and the more advanced stuff also). It's the 100% Blah series...(ISBN 0-7645-4333-4 is one that should do)
anyone know a different place i can download the rute pdf? i downloaded it and it says its corrupt... tried downloading the html and it just goes to some african website with nothing ot do with rute (as far as i can tell)
I agree, do not be intimidated by Rute. It is a great reference for any future questions. I have a RedHat book as well, but I don't get the same results that I get from flipping through the Rute pages.
