How to learn UNIX UNIX
So what do you do if you're a totally UNIX newbie (as I basically was two months ago; now I'm just a completely inexperienced UNIX user!).

Herre are a few online resources that I've used with varying degrees of success:

Univ. of Indiana UNIX training
Good info, some outdated links, some U of Indiana specific info.

Attrition.org UNIX training
Designed for newbies, with a focus on the security aspects of UNIX.

Yahoo FreeBSD
Yahoo's FreeBSD (BSD is the core UNIX below OS X) category listing, including a selection of tutorials.

Note that none of the above are specific to UNIX under OS X, and may contain incorrect information, especially on more advanced topics. All, however, contain info on the basics of surviving in UNIX.

Offline, I've been using a book called Teach youself UNIX in 24 hours by Dave Taylor and James Armstrong. It's organized into 24 one hour lessons, and covers everything from the basics up through shell scripts and a bit of perl.
