There are plenty of tutorials, for different purposes. If you want to learn something about the command line then I would recommend:
- http://linuxcommand.org/index.php
- http://rute.2038bug.com/index.html.gz

For learning of the different distributions of course their respective Wikis/documentation pages are the way to go, if you want to learn about a specific topic (for example setting up a file-server) just do a websearch for that topic together with Linux (for example searching with the keywords Linux fileserver.

By the time you make it to the end of the Arch Beginners' Guide, you'll know more about Linux than the average user, I promise.

You will understand the basic concepts of: partitioning a drive, /etc folder config files, network configuration, package management, users and groups, sound, video, desktop environment, and so much more!

OK, with the Arch beginner's guide, wireless setup, WPA supplicant, and netcfg pages, I am connected to the internet, from the command line. Color me somewhat impressed with myself.

Yes. Yes it does. And now the guide is starting to say things about sound and graphics. I'm practically giggling here.
