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 have a server running Debian however with the rental of this server i get a banwidth limit is there any way to check how much i have used? The computer is in america and i am in uk so it can only be connected to via shell/root. If there is some command then please let me know in simple terms. Eg exactly what to type and where. I know nothing about linux apart from how to get into root.
giving zero information about what this server is and what's running on it isn't a great way to get the answers you want... i'd suggest you install (and run...) ntop, which provides a web based interface able to show you historical bandwudth usage logs etc...
All i have on it is bit tornado for seeding torrents and glftpd. The problem is I have no idea how to install anything on the server except in glftpd. Sorry but like I said i am a complete n00b when it comes to this.
