there is an alternate way, which is much more fun (and the way i  
learnt). Start writing an application (depending on your choice, gui  
or web or sockets or whatever) In the process of downloading and  
setting up the software, getting the application to run, debugging,  
setting permissions, cron jobs etc etc, you will learn linux - and  
never realise you are learning. You will also learn to use mailing  
lists and IRC chat to solve your problems and meet interesting people.
