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 the tools from torrent but i am not able to install them manually
First, this isn't "urgent" for ANYONE here...it's pretty rude to flag your posts as such, then top it off with text-speak garbage.
You say you got the tools, but "am not able" to install them. Maybe if you bothered to actually TELL US what the error(s) were, we could help. If it were me, though, I'd just set up a simple FTP server in my Linux guest, then hit it from Windows with an FTP client, and get the files that way. Quick and simple...plenty of tutorials you can find via Google on how to set it up. Again, you provide no details (like version/distro of Linux you're using, number/size of the files, etc.). You could also try to plug in a USB thumbdrive, and see if it is visible to the guest.
