Try the sticky links in the Alt.OS.Abode folder. We've put a lot of information in there for people who are new to linux and want to learn.

In addition to what Jipstyle mentioned, I would also recommend you have a look at the available Linux.org online lessons. They are very helpful for beginners.

Oh and it's Linux not Linix :P

In parallel listen to these podcasts and install a distro. My favorite for newbies is PCLinuxOS, especially 2008 MiniMe.
