Good first post. I applaud you. Well what do you know. If nothing about hacking, I recomend Unix, Telnet, Study the TCP/IP protocol suit and maybe some other networking suits, Learn a language or 2. I recomend if you don't know any start easy. Qbasic, Pascal, HTML(Not realy a language but a start) Then C, C++ maybe C#.
If you are intrested in servers, read up on Unix, apache server, Learn Perl, ASP, PHP, Python, unix shells
