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 been having download problems and found that i can download tar.gz file from wine mirrors but not RPM. RPM download stops under 1 MB, mirrors are same. Actually most of my downloads start, but just stop, even yum update can`t run properly. Browsing is not a problem , i am only unable to connect to same site for awhile after download hanged.

if anyone has any idea whats wrong and how to fix please reply, haven't found solution yet
You may try downloading an RPM from a diffearent site. For example, use the closest rpmfind.net site to locate and download and RPM file. One difference could be than a tarball is smaller an RPM file and your internet connection fails on longer downloads.
I have problem downloading from almost any places, i just can`t understand why can i download tarball, but RPM download stops almost instantly. And i can`t change anything but my own PC, i have no access devices between my PC and IP (probably server and some switches). When i boot in windows downloads work much better, made test with FC4 DVD iso and downloaded 1.3GB before it froze, using linux i get 70MB if i am really lucky. Should i ask network administrator to fix something system or can i do something myself.
Try downloading an RPM using ftp. I don't really know what the problem is because you haven't provided a lot of details. One thing to check, however is if the .rpm extention is associated with 'real player'. That could cause problems if you are downloading from a browser.
I don`t even use realplayer and problem is also with wget and yum. Never problems with wine source or downloads from mplayerhq.hu, but as i said most downloads get less than 1MB and stop. After failed download it takes some time to be able connect same site again.
I don`t know what details should i add, so ask and i provide more information.
The only other thing that I can think of is if you have very little space in the /tmp or /var directory. I believe that a browser based download would be buffered in temp, while an update utility may store the rpm under the /var partition.
I have plenty of hd left. Anyway i suspect my network card has some hard problem or part of network i can`t modify. Windows worked bit better, but had same trouble time to time (it also got me mad and i killed my xp partition today) I can`t download ati drivers, two last attempt ended with 1.9 MB and 2.1 MB . I had wget hanging today and it showed speed over 200 without downloading anything in minutes. Anyway i want to try suse and had trouble downloading DVD iso, but wget seems to work now downloading current directory from some mirror. Nearly 400 MB and continuing, seems like downloading many smaller files works better than downloading large file (DVD iso stopped around 20 MB no matter what mirror i tried)
I am 99.9% sure it`s not fedora or new linux kernel causing problems. I installed mandrake 10.0 again and same issue. Before it worked perfectly. Nobody else in my network is complaining so it must be some defect on my realtek card or can it be something else.
