    There are many good books out that that teach the basics of hacking itself. There are also 'guideline' books that teach the difference between ethical and unethical hacking. But mainly the best way to learn is to have a goal and tailor your learning around what you need to do. As jayanth suggested, Backtrack will provide you with all the tools you need to use.

    Try learning bash and perl, possibly PHP as well. This well help you down the line to code things.

    I'm a CEH and CISSP, when I train my junior people the first thing I push is a familiarity with BASH (the most common linux command line shell) as well as a study of TCP/IP and other common internet protocols. Hacking is one thing but learning how to gain communication with a machine is the most fundamental skill. Sites like Hackthissite.org are great but that teaches you HTTP and programing exploits. But is a great place to start. I would suggest the COMPTIA Security+ book. It teaches you a lot of fundamentals about how stuff works. Find some piece that is interesting and start bugging the internet until you know how it works, then start playing with it to see if you can bend it to your will.
