That's a big question, too big to answer. Try netsearching for Linux with Tutorial and ask some more when you have studied the pages found and have specific questions.

Good questions attract good answers. Its worth studying how to ask good questions. This page is a classic.

aubrey;

looking at your first post, I'm wondering if you somehow go into a job that you're not prepared for. Regardless, the best way to learn Linux is by using it. Do you have it installed on your computer? If not, start there.

No one here can answer your question. It requires an encyclopedia, not a forum post.

Here are three good resources to get you started.

http://linux.about.com/. It's oriented to Ubuntu, but it's full of good info.

http://tille.garrels.be/training/tldp/. Machtelt Garrels Intro to Linux.

http://www.slackbook.org/. Slackware oriented, but excellent on the basics, such as file structure, permissions, and the like.
