And my suggestion, try to find a good book for offline referencing. And one other thing, force yourself to use Linux daily, that's really the best way to learn, is to just use it.

And like always, ask your questions here at LQ and browse the forums. You want to install and learn apache on Linux, search here, and such... that's another good way to come across ways to perform tasks, reading others questions and then reading the solutions yourself.

This may seem too obvious, but check the LQ Linux Wiki and Tutorial pages. It contains a wealth of information, although not as neatly as a published book. For starts, print out the basic command line commands. That way, if in learning you crash the GUI, you have a better chance of restoring it with the command line. And, of course, alot of these questions can give insights to how Linux system/community works!

But first, check out he Linux WIki and Tutorial pages right next to this post, on a link in the right hand--->
