I've got a LinuxPPC machine set up. But I'm not set up -- I don't know how to use it. I can get as far as booting in KDE and running Netscape (that's where I am at the moment).

But I want to do things like configure Apache. (I want to run the WebDAV module.)

I can't even figure out how to browse the file system, or figure out what's running on the machine. Where's Perl? Etc.

Does anyone know where I can find extremely basic tutorials for getting comfortable with Linux? The Linux resources I've found so far assume that I know more than I know. I know nothing.
