help a semi-newbie out

So I've been using redhat 9 for a few weeks. Fedora is dling right now and I'm going to upgrade when I get home from classes in a couple hours. I'm just wondering if you guys/gals can list out some really good linux helping/tutorial sites out there that you have bookmarked or you think is really valuable for a redhat newbie. I'm not a complete newbie though, I've upgraded to kde 3.2.1, latest version of wine, and pretty good with wine and some commands, but would like to learn more about services management, the filesystem. When i speak about the filesystem, I generally mean, the benefits of using ext3 over something else and why, and what's in /etc, what's in /root, etc.... Thanks.

Also if you guys know any good magazines that could be helpful, please say. I know there's linux journal, and I'm going to check it out at my local Barnes and nobles. Hopefully they don't have it wrapped. I hope this magazine isn't too advanced for me though.

Check out my Public Bookmarks (see my signature below) - I've gathered a few useful sites. Also, head over to our Reviews section - Jeremy has just started the magazine review section and you should be able to get a feel for what's out there.
