Hello, I'm new to this and want to become very good with the basics, most books are written badly I have seen. Any ideas?

I find Slackware Linux Essentials very useful. It's a free download. See . The link for a PDF download is .284 pages, mostly command line, and very pertinent to VectorLinux, with our Slackware heritage.
