Smile Newbie, Need Advice

Hi everyone,

I have just installed Mandrake 8.2 today, where do you recommend I go to get a good understanding of how to use linux?

For the very basic get a book (the one from o'reilly was not bad) or read the documentation that came with your distro.
For me the best way was (and is up to now) just working with the system. Everytime I can't do what I want or I saw a cool thing somewhere I'll try it out and go reading the manuals.
