Hello and welcome to LinuxQuestions!

http://www.linux.ie/beginners-linux-guide/
http://www.linuxlinks.com/Beginners/

I have provided you with two links to start out. I highly recommend you search next time on either these forums, and/or the internet (Google comes to mind) before you start a new thread. If you need assistance in trying to search, have a look at the links in my signature. I hope I have provided you with what exactly you are looking for, and good luck. And also, welcome to using such a great operating system as linux!

Cheers,

Josh

I would suggest do a bit of reading ... There are many books on the subject available ( lots online to download ). But in all fairness you did not give much information, as to what you expect from this distro or what you want to do with it. My opinion is experiment with it and don't be afraid to bork it (you don't learn until you break it a few times ) LOL.

Since you have it installed already, you're off to a good start and you may break something why not start here

Welcome to LQ

The best way to learn linux is using it.
Next step is reading the man pages, howto's, manuals, and using google.
A good resource is
http://tldp.org/

Kind regards

Welcome to Linux. You won't regret it.

Here's my standard list of links for starters. The About dot com one would be a good start:

http://linux.about.com/. It's oriented to Ubuntu, but it's full of good info.

http://tille.garrels.be/training/tldp/. Machtelt Garrels Intro to Linux.

http://www.slackbook.org/. Slackware oriented, but excellent on the basics, such as file structure, permissions, and the like.

Again, You'll have to ask yourself whether you are interested in Linux system administration,
Programming in Linux environ., dealing with the kernel modules or none of these? Pick one and
post back.

I suggest you to get familiar with command line cause it is universal and powerful enough to beat the windows out of you , slackbook( http://www.slackbook.org/#book ) is a real starter, simple and precise.

Later you can pursue your needs in programing or administration.
