looking for linux documentation

After finnally installing mandrake 9.2, I realized I dont know nearly as much as I need to to run it. Im trying to install my sound cards driver and I cant do it because, I dont know what to put for destination. I dont know how to dual boot etc etc. And instead of asking on here everytime I get stuck, I was wondering if theres some good text on linux out there.

These are the ones I personally use: -- The Linux Documentation Project. -- Linux-specific version of google.

Also a lot of software now comes with documentation in the HTML format. Navigate around the /usr/share/doc/ directory and you might find what you need!

You have many, many options.

The Linux Documentation Project is a place to start. As is the Mandrake site - they have documentation there. Also, search LQ and Google - this is a question which comes up in various formats a lot.

There are many docs on your cds as well. Load them onto your machine and read away BTW, you don't necessarily have to ask a question here. Use the search button up top. Perhaps your question was already asked and answered. There is also an excellent documentation section on this site as well. This is a good spot to start.
