The group sounder at is another place to get more info
too on Ubuntu and to talk to fellow Linux users.  Come on over and
subscribe and me and some of the other more friendly folks there will
answer all of your questions.  I'm kinds a newbie at Ubuntu myself.
The last time I messed with Linux was in the late 90's.  Boy has the
OS evolved since then!

Also, do some checking around and Google searching.  You "might" have
a LUG (Linux Users Group) in your area or near where you live that you
can join and participate in.

Also, here's an online Ubuntu Users Guide and Wiki...
