Unhappy Baby's first LQ post - I need expert direction

Hello guys/gals/etc (scroll down for quick question)

I have been assigned the task of developing a free WISP solution, marvellous. I am not a keen developer but I am determined to do this. Whether I can do it within a man-hours timescale that actually means we have in-house management for a cheaper implementation cost than actually buying one is dubious.

I will be using FreeRadius (auth/accounting) and MySQL (user/accouting tables). Now here is the funny part...

I know sweet F.A. about Linux and before I can do this I am trying to make it look as much like windows as possible.

Q. Does anyone have a good source for excellent beginner tuition (web/book) in using Linux?

p.s. If anyone is UK based and doesnt mind being bugged a little for the simple answer (like commands for this and that) then a mail would be great!

Take a look at these:

Before you start making it like windows... why?
Are you using a gui? Why not do all the stuff on the CLI - you will get a much faster server at the end of the day.
