I recommend "Running Linux, 5th edition" published by Oreilly.

http://shop.oreilly.com/product/9780596007607.do

It's a little dated now, and some things have changed, but it supplies a
great foundation. And its pitched at the point you say you are at.

Maybe you can find a second hand copy on the cheap?

Regards

Crispin
