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.

Alright, just got aDSL service from SBCYahoo. Definitely better than dial-up but I'm still concerned about the download speed. I paid for the minimum 768kb/s download, minimum 256kb/sec upload service, not the basic service. My best download to date is 181kb/s. I've been told that you should expect the minimum minus 20%, or about 615kb/s.
Was I misinformed, or am I not getting the service I paid for?
Be careful about your KB vs. Kb. The service you pay for is 768 kbits/s. Which is 96 kBytes/s.
Also note that not all sites will be able to feed you with that. dslreports.com has a tester that will tell you your speed. Distance from the CO can effect it as well, if you are far away the speed will drop.
