As you might expect, this has come up before.  I would consider
devoting space in the FAQ for pointers to basic UNIX resources.
However, I'm not the person to locate the resources or judge which are
suitable and which are crap.  (After 20 years of UNIX, my skills are
such that man pages and google are enough!)  If someone can distill a
few good resource pointers, I'll provide an item in the FAQ for them.

That is, when I get my home internet connection working... :-(
