just open a terminal from the gnome menu, no need to do anything else.

The following is a very old book, but commands don't change, so it's worth downloading the PDF:
The way to learn the command line is just to use it. So long as you back-up files before you change them, you'll come to no harm.

Dear friend ,

You can just do a [Alt+F2] then type "terminal" in the popped up box. Launch terminal by hitting enter .

You don't need to exit the GUI, just open a GUI terminal.

As long as PDFs are being tossed out there; This one is a good read:
Moves as at good speed, and pretty much dives right in. to use a terminal (the command line) click on System (what would be start if it where windows), Accessories, terminal (may also be called GNOME terminal,Xterm, or some other term varient) Hope that helps you out.

Here are some links you might find useful. It's oriented to Ubuntu, but it's full of good info. Machtelt Garrels Intro to Linux. Slackware oriented, but excellent on the basics, such as file structure, permissions, and the like.
