well as mentioned anywhere on the site is a great place to start looking around, the newbie security questions and general chit chat forums are usually a good place to learn about things you may never have heard of, ever hear of a liquid nitrogen cooled computer? (foudn that in the chat forum i think), in most cases the best way to learn is to ask questions in the forums, ive learnt heaps by asking questions and looking at other peoples responses to forum topics
if you havnt tried it already (but i think you may have) get yourself a linux distro and have a play around with it, its really a great learning tool and its free too and will run on almost any type of old computer system if you can do without the GUI interface

Fear the dark side, a force is stiring in the universe..................................... Just follow the wisdom of the small green one that goes by Yoda... Oh wait! Wrong site.. er.. um..... Welcome and pull up a chair. You'll find a wealth of info here. I just wanted to post this because it's always nice to see a new person post like this. Without the "how to hack whatever" postings. I like to see when someone says. Hey, I'm new and I want to learn. So welcome again.

Welcome, Jackass, and don't feel alone. I'll bet you know more than you think. There are a lot of security related sites on the net and all are helpful, but this is one of the most helpful, and one of the friendliest.
Spend some time checking out all the threads that the others have given you, then join in.

Jedi Masters?) have to give. 70% of the knowledge you're searching is here. But don't try to learn all in a week. You're trip into the security world have just begun young padaw.... err..newbie.
