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.

There is a DVD torrent in there (what I know contains 2 DVD images) and a live CD... what is it you are actually after? If you are after the DVD images, this is what the torrents are for. Else wise nothing else here is actually meant for the DVD... almost all the CentOS mirrors are the same to this, only supplying a torrent (tho I know of one or two that have the 1st DVD as a directly down-loadable file)

I think i've dl all the files (and md5sum ed them) to compile a Centos dvd, but i need to 'cat' them in right order before i burn to disc.
I understood that to mean "I need to take the CD images and form a DVD image out of them". See the link I posted earlier; it says on the page
The following script (mkdvdiso.sh) has been tested for CentOS 4 and 5 i386 to create DVD ISO images from CD images, or from an installation tree. If the installation tree does not contain a .discinfo file, one must be obtained from the top level of a CD.
which seems to do just that. A better option might have been to download the DVD image in the first place, but if the CD images are already there and here's a script that turns them into a DVD, why not? Depending on internet connection speed and the computer hardware, it might be faster than downloading the enormous DVD image...
