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 no such thing as a "bittorrent file" in the way you're using it.. it's just a file that happens to have been obtained via bittorrent. maybe you mean an iso file? if so, just burn as image in nero.
torrent files must be downloaded through a bittorrent client. i use Azureus although there's a lot of different ones. you've basically downloaded a "instructions" file and when you open it with a client, it will connect to peers and download the data. so it will probably end up being something like a .iso file when it's done downloading.
hokay.. bittorrent is a peer to peer distribution system for files. popular with people who want to avoid strain on their servers, it is also popular among those distributing dvdrips games and tvrips though. you aren't using it for these illegal/questionably legal purposes. so don't worry about it.(lots of people worry about this)
