Hi Anthony,


Python.org has a topic guide for beginners who'd like to learn Python:

    http://www.python.org/topics/learn/

For your target audience, you may find Jacek Artymiak's article on
"Python Programming for Beginners" a good one, as it focuses on some
system administration and shell-scripting issues:

    http://www.linuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=3946

and all of the tutorials on the Beginners topic guide are pretty good.


You're also always welcome to ask learning questions on the
Python-Tutor mailing list:

    http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/tutor


Good luck to you!
