If you dont mind paying a large-ish amount
I'd recommend IBM's Linux training course. Its better
value if you get a group of people to go on it together
as a class. The notes they supply are excellent.
http://www.griffinsoft.com/ was mentioned
on this list recently also.
All the above are quite expensive though - probably a
tad too focused for a home user looking to get a quick
intro to the basics.
My suggestion for a home user is as follows:
Get yourself a nice large cup of coffee, find a comfy chair
near your pc and get reading one of those books like
"Linux Unleashed" or something similar. Just pick one that
you find easy to read and understand.
Other places to look for specific help:
- The support section on the website of your distrobution of Linux
- The aforementioned HOWTO's
- man pages
- The archives of this list on www.linux.ie
- Ask on this list (try the above first though)
