You can start with Linux Documentation Proyect at http://www.linuxhq.com/LDP/
linuxhq is a good entry point to know about linux. You should visit the home page of your distribution also!

Good Luck

A good source of help are the various books on Linux, or Unix in General. A book that I can highly recommend for a good overview of the various commands is "Unix in a nutshell" - it'll explain how to use more or less every command.

However, if you've never come across Unix before, it might be a bit too technical. Try one of the 'Learn Linux in 21 day' type books, or "Unix for Dummies" - all good books aimed at new comers. And if money is a premium, then as the earlier comment suggests - take a look at the Linux documentation project.

Some other good URL's:

http://www.linux.org
http://www.freshmeat.net
http://www.slashdot.com
