Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I especially like GAIM in it's new edition (you can put it into system tray). And also everything worked out of the box. For the first time. Took me 45 minutes to fully install Fedora to work without any problems at all.
Don't use the Fedora download links if you can help it because they are so overloaded. I'm on a 256k DSL I got CD 1 from a mirrors in 6 hours and here is the status of the other 3 disks
Disk 2 about 25% complete. Still has 15 hours (from fedora DL link)
Disk 3 about 60% complete. Still has 3 hours (from a mirror)
Disk 4 about 10% complete. Still has 10 hours (from another mirror)
As you can see the mirrors are running faster than Fedora's links. Also for better speeds try a mirror at the bottom of the list for your region. The top ones have a tendency to be either slow or maxed out.
i was grabbing it @ ~ 2.5mbits on a 3 mbit connection.
of course there is something up with my connection, prolly windows bitching about the amount of connections, happens with torrents with over 1000 seeders. I'm going to attempt to DL through MDK. I hate SP2 and how it limits connections, and I even fixed that.. so i thought.
make sure you are connectable with any client you use, or you will not get the best dl speed possible. also it wouldn't hurt to use a port above the 45000 range, i use 55000, solid DL speds from good seeds.
edit: it's also in the mirror's list.
