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.

Thanks for your help. I did email the source back to let him know what trouble I was having. Hoefully, he'll send something I can use.
He had orginally sent it as a .gz file, but I couldn't open that either. The error message said something about the compression format. He removed the .gz and sent it again, so maybe the problem is on his end.
I just wanted to thank you all for your input. It is wonderful that you are all so helpful and nice to know I have a place to come to when I need some assistance.
As a follow-up on the file, the problem was on the other end. The database admin thinks it was the FTP process. He put a .zip extension on it, sent it in binary mode then suggested I just use -> unzip filename.zip. That worked. WOO HOO.
