Where to start? (apologies, I know this has to have been asked before)
If I am familiar (or at least *was* familiar) with unix as an operating environment from my time as a CS student, but I have never set up a linux machine, where should I start my journey of knowledge?
I don't mind reading stuff I already know (or perhaps have forgotten since school) to get to all the stuff I don't know. I have never really liked microsoft products and am finally in a position in my life where I have time to devote to learning linux and installing it on one or two computers as I build my home network.
Anyway, any recommendations on where to start, or even good web sites that have detailed information on how to do different common things: set up an emacs or vi editor, get the latest compilers, sample source code, programming ideas, tweaking suggestions.
Thanks in advance.
