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 know that I can use VNC to log in, do stuff and close the client without closing the session and when you open up the VNC client again to log in (except you don't log in, you just connect), the session is still there as if you have never left. I was wondering if the same could be accomplished with SSH in Linux (SuSE if it helps ), and if so, how?
I use the 'screen' program for this. You can create as many 'screens' as you want, set them to do stuff, then 'detach' them. Once you're in a screen, everything is done with Ctrl-A-<something> - create new screen, close screen, swap between screens. And I'm pretty sure you can log all output to a file very easily too, though I don't bother.
Works very well.
Sorry don't know the easiest way to find it using SuSE. Look in your package manager for 'screen'.
What I want to do is this:
From either Windows or Linux I want to remotely connect via SSH to my Linux Gateway server (SuSE) and for instance let wget download something. If I were sitting at my father's PC (for example), I don't want him or my brothers to fiddle around on my linux account (not that they would, I'm just using it as an example), so I close the Putty (windows) client and then later I check how far it downloaded by going to my PC, opening up Putty in Windows or Konsole in Linux (depending weither I'm in Windows or Linux), connecting to the server with my account and see how far it downloaded.
