The Linux Documentation Project at http://www.linuxdoc.org/ has huge amounts of information on all things Linux.

The Linux Myth Dispeller at http://www.KenAndTed.com/KensBookmark/linux/index.html and the Linux Anti-FUD FAQ at http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Hills/9267/fud2.html address common myths and misconceptions about Linux.
