Resources for learning kernel commands

Open source apps and software expert Bernard Golden recommends three books for getting started with Linux kernel commands.

I just purchased a copy of PCLinuxOS version 9.2 off of eBay and can't find anything on it. I would like to learn the basic commands and know what Linux kernel it is based on. How does it stack up against other distros? Can you tell me more about this version?

I am not very familiar with this distro. It will run as a live CD (meaning you can run it from your CD drive without actually installing it on your hard drive). In terms of how to learn Linux, there are undoubtedly resources on the Web, as well as a number of books. In terms of books you can look at. Point and Click Linux, Moving to Linux and Linux for Dummies are three titles that should help.
