You're welcome.

Your approach might be different to mine but I found reading about Linux when I first started using it time consuming and not very productive. Instead, I launched into a series of live distros and then referred to the corresponding forums for stuff I couldn't work out. This was a better learning method for me but your experience might vary. Best of luck anyway.
