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.

here is a tool with which you can surf anonymous. The program is available for Windoze, Linux/Unix , Mac, OS/2, PocketPC (only Beta version) or you can compile yourself. for more details please read the infos on the page...
Tks for this answer.
Will test it for surfing tonite.
But when looking at the doc, i read this :
File sharing and other peer-to-peer programs (for example, KaZaa, Morpheus, EDonkey)?
No, anonymization is not possible!
The potential for abuse (for example, in the form of copyright infringement)
is too high and we want to use our limited personel resources for the
research project rather than for dealing with complaints.
Furthermore, such services require a very large bandwidth and
thus cause significant costs.
Does that mean that Torrent, p2p or CVS sharing will be unavalaible anonymously as well ?
forgot about all that software crap, don't need any of it. that software just changes the gateway to a proxy in your routing table for port 80 traffic. that's it. don't need no software to do that just manual do it yourself, becuase who knows what other possibly malicious things are in that software. do you really trust it, without the source. I wouldn't that for sure.
as to why it only works for surfing... most free proxies will only give you port 80 ... i.e. http web.
torrent, instant message and all other programs use a different port so oh well. most free proxies are nothing more than web analyzers to see what sites you are going too... marketing and stuff. because who ever owns the proxy knows everything about you and can keep a detailed record. much more detailed than if you weren't using a proxy. unless you trust the proxy, i.e. it is yours or someone you know.
Anonymous web surfing sites allow you to bypass work filters by fetching the website’s data themselves, and then sending it back to you through the free anonymizer. These free anonymous surfing sites are powered by software that resides on the server. Not only do they allow you to circumvent filters put in place by network administrators, they also protect your online privacy by masking your IP Address, thus allowing you to surf the web anonymously. When you surf without a free anonymizer, your computer is exposed to all types of potentially harmful content (like viruses and spyware), and your personal information can easily be recorded by data trackers, effectively eliminating any privacy at work.
