I want to try and work my way up to Arch... But how?


I don't know where to start, I just recently began using linux a month ago and have been using it as I have been for windows, nothing has really changed. Using Freespire right now. I want to work my up to using a more advanced linux distro and was thinking of trying Arch on a new computer. DOn't know the requirements and if you need to know very much on the command line or not.

But where do I start and how can I get to the point where I can use Arch? I've used the command line a little bit. ANy steps would be useful. What do I need to know?

Point me in the right direction please.

If this has been asked before, sorry, I couldn't find it in the search section.

Thanks,
Skarpz
