hi ranguvar.

Basics as in..........well i mean basics as in anything, like starting from the letter a and ending with the letter z, or begining with the number #1 and then coninuing with number #2 ans so on, until you become an expert with numbers. Got the idea. Basics = elementary, begining, fisrt thing you have to learn about linux...etc, etc, etc. Thanks for all your kind help.

My regards

I suggest you install Linux (probably you already have) and pick the tool you want to use, then check out it's help files (GUI applications usually have menu item for this, or run 'man <application>' to see the help file for the command-line tools. After some time proceed to the next application in the same way.

Maybe check out for tutorials or (The Linux Documentation Project) for all kind of information.

Learning by doing (using) the Linux system is the way to go.
