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 downloaded an .exe file from the uTorrent website, but clearly do not have the appropriate program to open it. I'm really not very knowledgeable about Linux, so, if you do post a response - which I would, of course, appreciate very much - please provide step-by-step instructions that... well... a dim child could follow. Thank you very much.
uTorrent appears, from their website, to only have Windows or mac versions, and certainly a .exe extensions suggests Windows. Is there any particular reason why you need uTorrent over a Linux alternative?
Yeah, agreed. It is the best torrent application out there. It has plugin support with a lot of nice plugins. One day, though I am gonna patch the RSS reader to support for filtering out certain matches (all I can do now is just pause them, not remove them).
there is also rtorrent and torrentflux... to be honest, I have been using transmission (only because it was default and my current activities tend to revolve around speed once installed rather then personal preference)
