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 have a very odd problem here - I am unable to access the autopackage.org website. ( I'm using Fedora Core 5).
When I try accessing the site using Firefox, there is no response.
Other sites are fine (I always see the rd ("received)" modem light flashing away), but with this site - nothing.
So, I tried a nifty thing - I downloaded a package called "packer" (helps to automate package creation). It is available as an autopackage (which means that it tries to access the autopackage website). From that, when it tried to access the site, I got the autopackage IP address (22.214.171.124).
I pinged that address, and got the following - (the "from" IP address is different - not sure why that is, but anyway ... )
From 126.96.36.199 - icmp_seq = 1 packet filtered
From 188.8.131.52 - icmp_seq = 3 packet filtered
From 184.108.40.206 - icmp_seq = 4 packet filtered
.... and so on.
So - anyone know what may be happening here? The "filtered" looks as if this site is deliberately blocking me, but I'm not spamming them, sending malware or anything - I just want to download their software. I may have to download it in an internet-cafe ....
