    Personally, I would not suggest going into Linux hosting without knowing anything about Linux or having somebody at hand who can help you out. I used to work for a hosting company where a lot of resellers were thoroughly ignorant of the basics of working in Linux and so they'd simply drop all their server management needs on Support. Of course, if you have that kind of Support to fall back on, I guess you could do it. But my advice would be to first do some research, install Linux locally and play with it and have some knowledge of Linux. It is no fun when you're groping around in the dark

    As far as references go, just type in "Linux command reference" in Google and you'll get plenty of links. I believe has some good Linux command references as well.

    If you are just starting linux hosting, then the best method is to start with a reseller package. If you think that you need root access, then go for a webhost that provide the full server management, since you are a newbiee in Linux.
