I haven't seen anything like that, but then I've not been looking for
one.  The trouble with helping beginners is where to start.  You could
presume nothing, or something, about their experience.  Linux compounds
this more by people having to start from scratch.  i.e. With new Windows
victims they don't usually have to figure out how to install the OS,
they've (usually) had more of the hard work done for them.

My first foray into Linux was from one of those small books about the
size of the Readers Digest with install discs, that are commonly sold in
newsagents.  I'd recommend one of them as a good starting point.  The
first one or two that I read had quite a few "getting started" guides
with useful details that questions about similar things would usually
get you a RTFM command response on a mailing list or newsgroup.

I read messages from the public lists.
