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.

This problem right now is driving me nuts. I've been using Linux lightly for awhile now, but have finally started using it on my desktop as my main OS. This is the one problem preventing me from using Linux exclusively.
Here is what I got:
SUSE 9.1 Linux version 2.6.5-7.111-default (geeko@buildhost) (gcc version 3.3.3 (SuSE Linux)) #1 Wed Oct 13 15:45:13 UTC 2004
Sun Java2-jre 1.4.2
My network connection dies soon after starting a torrent. I think it is related to the upload, rather than download. There have been a few torrent that completed, but with abysmal share ratios. I've tried many different settings for Azureus including severely limiting my upload & download bandwidth and alternative socket pooling. My cable modem is not the problem. In windows it works fine and in linux The problem is fixed (for a bit) with rebooting my computer. I have tried disabling the SUSE firewall. At least I think it is, I disabled it in YaST. I think the problem might be with some of my TCP/IP settings but I don't have the first clue on how to change these. I have IPv6 enabled, I'm going to turn that off see if it fixes anything, doubt it.
Anybody got a clue to what is causing the problem, and how to fix it?
You should get a static IP address so that you can be seen on the IP without having a different IP address everytime you try to use Azureus. Do you have at least two NICs in your Linux box??? That would be handy so that it acts as your gateway to the internet. Do you have an internal network set up?
