This won't help you console cowboys, but you don't need any help anyway, but you can help.
Primary reasoning behind this is for everyone else to know what the others have access to.
before we really spike this, I want to talk about games first.
current games like
Hacker Evolution http://www.exosyphen.com/page_hacker-evolution.html
these 2 games teach console and gui based hacking, with an underlying use of shell commands, proxies and TOR.
In my mind it's alright to post these 2 links, as these guys while I doubt they make much money are making games to sell, they are good games even on steam but we have to be careful about what we point to so it doesn't take down servers of people doing things for free, running them out of their own pocket.
web-based games too, teach how easy a web-coding mistake gets you and others into websites.
There are many of those, I don't want to recommend any one in any certain order, so I'm not going to post any. These would be best posted by people that know it would be okay to post or simply search for them.
"website hacking game"
Now that we have the beginner's stuff covered, and I didn't get banned, let's pierce the veil.
setup a VM.http://www.virtualbox.org/
setup a proxy, level the playing field.https://www.torproject.org/
Huge. Videos. Tools. Scripts.http://www.securitytube.net/
HACK THE PLANET!http://hak5.org/
more tools and scripts.http://www.securityxploded.com/
scripts, tools, info, scary.http://www.pentestit.com/
more tools, more info, more scripts.http://esploit.blogspot.com/
download the ISO and run BT5 in virtualbox, choose gnome.http://www.backtrack-linux.org/
once you setup the VM, and it is working with the net, run "apt-get update" then "apt-get upgrade".
Many tutorials for every aspect of this, however the linux community is huge and sometimes tutorials can become outdated, so make sure to check dates if something is not working.
Most of the above is going to look like jibberish to beginners, so I recommend the video games and web hacking games to get acclimated.
During this hak5 is quite an entrance into this, they have been sponsored by the US Airforce before. For anyone that doesn't know, the US Airforce is where they keep a lot of military hackers, can only really speculate as to who and what they are, however we can be sure they are military grade, with military grade tools. After that securitytube it's huge, mostly powerpoints and lectures... but there are some console screen recordings.
I'm gonna leave you now, because I know you are busy.
