New to Linux

I am very interested in Linux. I have a Dell Inspiron 9100 with 1gig, 80gig HD, Dlink DWL-g650 wifi adapter that was given to me. I want to use it to learn Linux. I have been told it will work with Linux witout any problems. I can figure out how to install Linux just fine. What I need help with is finding a really good book that can teach someone who doesn't know much about how to really use Linux, other than clicking thru wizards on the desktop, how to truely learn Linux.

I have looked througha few for dummy's books, and even a "from Windows to Linux" book. They didn't teach me much more than I already new. I know Windows extreemly well and understand how OSs work.

So can anyone recommend a book that they themselvs have had good experiences with that would be easy enough for a novice to learn from?

Please help out if you can!

Welcome to LQ.
Of all the books about Linux I have bought the one that still remains on my book shelf is called
"How liux works" by "No starch press"

But by far the best resource is
Goodluck anyway,I'm sure other people will have some more recommendations.

Also see our Tutorials section (link at top of page), Rute and Running Linux and Linux in a Nutshell from O'Reilly. Once you have those, there are any number of books to add to your shelves...
