Submission + - Amature Syllabus for teaching Linux

Koshari writes: I have been trying to find a good syllabus to follow when teaching Linux to people who only know Windows XP/Vista. I have good knowledge of the system being an MIS student even though sadly we don't have any Linux exposure in the curriculum. I don't know where to start when I teach someone who never used any of the Linux flavors. I have been talking to many family and friends about the open-source movement, GPL, and Linux etc., since I really believe/support them and many have been convinced. As they read more about Linux some have asked for me to teach them more. What would you recommend as a basic reference I can use? where I can get material that is simple to understand for people migrating from Windows to Linux? please include more things that you would see fit. Thanks in advance!
