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 never knew exactly what to do with a downloaded torrent once the associated set of files had been transmitted. One day I made up my mind to fall back on LQ. Well... the thread got filled with many posts, and there were several opinions. Until a certain post completely illuminated the issue. The poster, in a most categorical --and, I dare say, brilliant way, stated four reasons why the torrent should be kept along with the set. ( I know categorical is not well seen as a word nowadays but some persons ought to be allowed the luxury of using it.)
Not only this. He mentioned the name of a program which could be used in the maintenance of torrent files. This little and efficient program is called CFV, made by intelligent people for intelligent people.
Currently I use CFV each time I download a torrent and stick to the policy so wisely delineated by Telengard, who happens to be the poster I was speaking about. If the story just told is not correct I apologize beforehand and my personal greetings to the above mentioned LQer.
