HI

I am new at Linux, I have learned something about it, reading some here, some there but I would like to formalize the knowledge in order to became a good server administrator.

Could you recommend a tutorial, course or even a good book about it?

Thanks in advance.

Best known (by me) are the courses from LinuxCBT: http://www.linuxcbt.com/

For free, I would suggest you configure some VM's with CentOS and try to do things with them, such as configuring firewall rules, mail and web servers, reading logs, setting up cron jobs etc.

LE: if you're interested in RedHat, you might consider their training: http://www.redhat.com/training/

HTH,
Dan

There are many versions of linux - determine which one you want to master and look for course and certifications in it.  Common ones are Red Hat, Suse, and Debian, but there are many others and most are based either on Red Hat or Debian (that is, they are very similar to one of those two).

I am interested in CentOS, I am willing to pay for online courses but if there is good free material that you know about it, will be perfect, even a book that you could recommed.

Regards.

CentOS is similar to RedHAT and they are supported by RedHAT only.

You can go for RHCSA/RHCE.
