Two things that helped me:
1. a small book, "Linux Programmer's Reference", by Richard Petersen,
which covers in detail the shell (bash, tcsh, etc) and getting your
compiler to work, plus quick references for perl, tk, tcl and latex.
Very handy thing to have around.
2. The manuals that come with SuSE linux (hopefully, they still include
those manuals with the latest version). Good help with configuration
