Firstly get yourself a distro. I'd go for Knoppix, as it runs from CD, 
so you don't have to worry about a linux install to start with.

Filesystem On CD

I'm pretty sure that'll have apache / sendmail and what have you so you 
should be able to start playing straight away.

Join your local LUG mailing list, and start asking questions... Good luck.

Kind regards,
