Don't take this the wrong way, but putting more thought into your first post is how you should have started.

Thought i'd help along.

Did a search on the forum and have a look at this link

It has some parts on Solaris but most of the stuffs/links are relevant to get you going on your Linux quest. As it did with us (one way or another).

Linux has stages of developement.

1- Installation
2- Computer Usage (non administrative) : Surf the web, wordprocessor ,etcetera.
3- Administrative (configure files that are read by an interpreter) ( Script programming and everything except compiled programming).
4- Development (writing compiled programs for a certain architecture, debugging etcetera).

If you are really new I would recommend you read a few guides and tutorials for your Distro of choice. I say the major split with Linux Distros is what kind of binaries they use as in Deb. or RPM. There are other differences but this is a major defining one.
