google is a good site for searching solution, but it's only for searching not for learning.

the best way is choose your linux and install and try an error will be fast learn, but sure you need some guide, and www.tldp.org will be good enough ;)

I agree with Paul, Trial and Error is the best technique, and combined with forums, IRC, tldp and google you can learn alot. But first you have to understand the basics of the system.

arnOld,

I use google a lot, and I been using linux over 4 years, and the best way to know something in IT is trial and error, I read tons of stuff before I setup my 1st linux 4 years ago, but still got lots of problem/error following what I read, but I havn't give up and kept playing around the linux, and trial reinstall more than 4 times, because I crash it, and I can't say I'm very good on linux, but I think I'm OK on this :) on this way, sure you have to get some info on the internet and trial, but without setup your linux how you can know the things really go?

Books and internet info only reference, only if you can apply to the real life you know how it's happen and you know how to config/setup, if not you only got theories.

Do you agree?

Anyway, let the asker to choose how he/she to work out, we only have difference opinion, right.

Paul
