Talking New to Linux looking to learn alot.

First up I am pretty new to the linux software having dabbled a little a long time ago I have finally picked up a copy of a Linux magazine and taken the 3 disk Mandrake 10 install and threw it onto a Toshiba Satellite laptop I had that was just used for messing around on.

Install was interesting to say the least, it work pretty well after one kernel frenzy. Next fun I had was trying my wireless network card, Belkin 54g - needless to say a complete reinstall later I reverted to a standard network adapter till I had a better feel for the system.

Even that was fraught with hassles but eventually I managed to get the laptop onto the internet and running. Still battling with Samba though got a little work to do there - can see one computer out the 3 windows machines I got on the network, and the other machines can see the linux one - just cant do anything with them - more reading coming I guess.

Point of this post, an introduction really and a little pleas for some advice, I dove back into linux for a reason I wanted to get back into web design, a little hobby i picked up when I was younger (local charity website). I quite enjoyed it so wanted to learn more about it. Now never one to do it the easy way I thought I would try Mysql and PHP seems pretty popular and my current net account has both available on my web space. So any hints, tricks, useful websites and editting aids (gui's etc) that could aid me would be handy as from all I have read to date it seems its pretty much built from the command line.

Must say this is a great find as a website and I have solved a few problems looking through the info to hand here, thanks to all.
