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'm using Mandrake 9.0 right now with my ADSL connection. Thanks guys for all your help. I was wondering though, I don't know anything about music, nothing I've tried works. Can anyone tell me how to download music with Mandrake?
Definitely agree 1000.5 % The gnutella crap sucks. For P2P dcgui is the only way to go (on win or Linux IMO). It does take a bit to get the hang of, but once you get a few files shared (20+ GB's) You can get into the good hubs, where the people with alot of files and fast connections live. Then you are good to go. Anything you want, in full albums at high quality and at high speeds. Personally I love the Asgard hub. Great stuff/people there. I'm also a huge fan of Smallville and Angel and so the Smallville hub is great for those
I use Kazaa Lite 1.72 with wine....the kazaa lite 2 series installs and works but i have had alot of failed downloads with that those, the newest kazaa lite (i think 3 not sure, but called k++) doesnt install, but yea, the 1.72 works great and its all on the same network so it doesnt matter which kazaa you get. Just search around because you need to get a few DLL's and a special registry. I will post the instuctions up later so some of you can see.
