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.

If you want a newer package to install on Debian stable, then you can always build it from the source package in either testing or unstable and port that to stable (I'm assuming you're using Debian stable). The process is described here, with additional information about porting from testing or unstable here (to get the newer version in a package form for your current stable release of Debian.) Also note that the sid source does contain the newest version (2.2.6), so sid (unstable) is what you would want to use rather than testing (but again, ported from source, not directly installed).

Reason: made the link more specific
Version 2.2.6 of zabbix-agent on Debian is available on the unstable release. It would not be a good idea to mix stable with unstable (or even testing) packages. I see that zabbix is not available on stable (Wheezy) packages but you can get it on wheezy-backports. It won't be version 2.2.6, however, but only 2.2.5.
