Welcome Sam! As you're starting from scratch, I recommend starting with 
Mandrake's manuals. Just work your way through in sequence. It may sound 
tedious, but you'll get off the ground a lot faster, and experience a lot 
less frustration. 

Then you can move up to the Big Geek books, like Running Linux and Essential 
System Administration.

www.linuxnewbie.org is a good resource, and the Linux Cookbook,
