What do you mean by "Linux scripting"? If you want to work with files 
and directories, look at the os and shutil modules. If you want to run 
other programs, look at the subprocess module (though you may find that 
Python has built-in capabilities that you can use instead of calling 
external programs).

If you want better recommendations you will have to be more specific 
about your needs.
