Well what you have to know is that most Linux OS's might have different name, most of them share the same kernel, the difference in the names is the features that come with them.

Get a book that explains Red Hat and you might be in bizness. But I must let you know that is the problem with Open Sources, you never get a complete manual in one source you just need to keep looking around. wink

Av been using it for 4 years now so I know. You never get everything in one place.

Back to ur question. How to start?

1.Try installing one first, runing side by side with windows, cos am sure sometimes ud always want to go back and save urself problems.

2. Keep trying to make it as functional as ur windows OS.

3. Join forums, ask questions, learn to use the shell that is the easiest way to get things done in there.

I dont think av been very helpful have I? lol

Okaaaaaayyyyyyyy here is a link http://www.linux.org/docs/online_books.html

Good luck bro, did I metion its of advantage to have some coding skill, not to worry u dont need to be an expert, at least u just need to know how to get around things when they dont work as they should. undecided
