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.

I am quite new to Linux. My background is in DOS. I am running Knoppix from a CD on my system. How do I open an editor say Kwrite from the shell prompt so that I can type in C code that I can compile and run?
To use BitTorrent, Download it, and visit the Knoppix BitTorrent Tracker, and click the "DL" link next to the image you want to download ( -EN or -DE ). Save that file, then run btdownloadgui KNOPPIX-[date].torrent. Leave the program running when your download has finished, as you'll be uploading it for other people.
I tried to download the DVD but I did not quite follow the instructions.
where I am I suppose to run this command from , is it the C:\ prompt? btdownloadgui KNOPPIX-[date].torrent.
Distribution: Mac OS X 10.6.4 "Snow Leopard", Win 7, Ubuntu 10.04
Do you have a BitTorrent downloading application? If you're in windows something like utorrent? You should be able to download the .torrent file and double click it to open it in your default app if you have one already.
