Is there a website or more than one which can train someone to use (Mandrake) linux. I need to get up tp speed with this quickly, and need a crash course, for free. I would love to be able to use this with the ease that some of you others can, but have no one else to turn to. Also, if you can recommend a great book on linux, (Mandrake), that would be great as well. Thanks again guys,
John

My goal is to get this (or any other platform I decide to use in the future), to run any and everything I need it to. I want the ability to use all things that a microsoft user and a Mac user can, with the power in the linux platform. Is this possible?

My favorite first book (not Mandrake specific,more RedHat) was
Linux for the Windows Addict:A 12 Step program
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detai...=glance&s=books
A lot of learning comes from doing and asking.
Forums and mailing lists are great when you have a question
because someone has already had your problem.
