To answer this sufficiently one would have to write a book. A good way to start is to learn to use searches. Every prolblem you have, I guarantee you, someone has had before. Whether it's technical or in terms of understanding the system. So searching this Forum, and the the internet you should get a good idea how things work rather quickly. What you really should look into is how to use a search engine efficiently. A good place to search is http://www.google.com/linux And use long search strings. - Remember you are searching through enormous amounts of text. The more specific you are, the better the answer will be. Use Firefox's integrated search (ctrl-f) to browse through a single site.

Lately there have been quite a few books released for linux end-users. You should find something recent in your local library or bookstore.

Good luck. If you feel you hit a wall post a more specific question in the appropriate sub-forum. A thread like this is unlikely to get you answers for your bluetooth problems.

SUSE 10.3 is a good choice for someone coming from Windows--simply because many things are similar. More generally, there are a few things that are becoming de-facto standards. For example, the following seem to work about the same on all systems:
--- rt-click for logical commands in context
--- ctrl-C, ctrl-V, ctrl-X, ctrl-P etc.
--- drag and drop move and copy
One thing that is very different is the package manager--there is really no equivalent in Windows. In the menus, it is called different things. In SUSE it is YAST, but it might also say "install software" or something similar. Take the time to get familiar with the package manager and always use it for new SW if at all possible.

True. Anyway, one main difference is the one-click instead of the double-click. This can spare hamstrings in respect of windows users' ones!
