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.

Heh, sorry this is more like a waste of bandwidth.
I remember not too long ago seeing a "giFT For newbies" thread or something similar, well I searched for it but found nothing, if someone could link me to it, or give me a hand with how to configure giFT
no no, it's because you haven't got any protocols installed!! It's looking for the openFT protocol (you just used the defauly values when it asked, didn't you!) but it can't find it because it's not there. You need to download and install it first.
If you want to connect to the Kazaa network (fast track) you'll need the gift-fasttrack plugin. It seems to have vanished off the face of the earth, but I think I have a copy somewhere...if you give me a second I'll find it and post it to my website.
