You'll be doing yourself a real favour by, depending on how you learn
stuff best, finding an online tutorial or buying a Linux sysadmin book
and studying it.

I've NEVER missed that. Apart from anything else almost configuration
item in Linux is plain text, so you can find and tweak almost anything
if you can use the command line tools and one of the many text editors.

Try that with Windows, with all its undocumented and obfuscated
configuration data.

Its worth knowing how to use vi/vim too, because they need so little
support to work - just the dumbest terminal and not even arrow or
function keys. Some day knowing it *will* get you out of a situation,
data intact, where all you could do with Windows would be to wipe the
disk and reinstall.
