Podcasts targeted at new users, cover a lot of very basic information and ease their way up to more advanced topics. Linux realities is a bit old but for the most part still relevant, going linux is ongoing and you can still contact the hosts for help.

Look through the archives of both, though, and they provide a good starting point for a lot of the things you can do with linux and how to do them etc.

Slackware oriented, but excellent on the basics, such as file structure, permissions, and the like.

You will find much more at The Linux Documentation Project.
