Hi & Welcome to Linux Questions.

One way to improve your skills with Linux is to install Linux on your computer.

which part is important in linux.
There are many things that are important in running Linux.

Since you are new to Linux I suggest giving Linux Mint a try.
http://www.linuxmint.com/

If you would like something more challenging try Slackware.
It's incredibly stable and a good teacher.-

Hi...

Welcome to the forum...

Honestly, apart from attending a class, just start using (and doing things) with it and ask for help when you get stuck. That's probably the biggest component.

Regards...

I'd reckon you learn it the same way you would with Windows; load it on your computer and "play" with it.
Most Distros will boot to a desktop. Unlike Windows you'll have loads of applications to check out as well.

Once you start to become familiar with it you can start to delve a bit deeper into the workings when needed.

Play Bonny!

If you are used to windows then the linux distro (distribution) you should use is called Mint. It's looks and feels more like windows.

If you are more used to a Mac, then ubuntu is probably more intuitive for you.

Go very slowly and don't be intimidated by all the jargon On the websites and forums. You will eventually get to know what everyone is talking about. Most of it you don't need to know. You don't need to know what spark plugs are in the engine when you are driving home a new car and likewise you don't need know 95 of what is being said in the forums. You just need to get the system up and running and from there you will begin learning.

01. Pick your distro and go to their website to download it. Mint or Ubuntu.
02. Research what a ISO is. I think one of the guys already posted a link.
03. Get a blank dvd and burn the ISO to your dvd.
04. once the dvd is burned and in your computer, turn it off and restart holding down f12
05. Follow the instructions, they are pretty basic.

Good luck, keep coming back!
