Well if you want to stick with RedHat (I think RedHat 9 is pretty good) I would install version 9 and take a look at the RedHat Linux 9 for Dummies book (http://www.dummies.com/WileyCDA/DummiesTitle/productCd-0764539906.html) for a high level overview of Linux. The Dummies books tend to point you in the right direction. Also the RedHat documenation is available online at RedHats site ... http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/
hope that helps

O'Reilly has some excellent Linux books, most notably Running Linux. I started out with that and found it enormously helpful

Hello,
I also just started using linux. The web sites in the repies are very good, especially for newbies like me.
Also, this is a good book.
Red Hat Linux 9 (Unleashed)
