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.

Can anyone tell me if there is a good internet file sharing app for Linux? Something equal to Kazaa? I heard there used to be a Kazaa for linux but that it is no more. I wouldn't want to share any files the RIAA says I shouldn't share mind you
i assumed any1 asking if fileshareing in linux was available, was obviously a newbie.
and althought Apollon is just a frontend to gift... Apollon has gift and the pluggins listed as dependency's... so installing gift will also get you apollon... (depending on what install method u use ofcourse.. u used yum)
Yep, giFT and mlDonkey. Sorry, there are no Linux apps that are Equal to KaZaa, as they are far superior to KaZaa. What do I mean? They don't stop at connecting to KaZaa's FastTrack network - that'd be a waste of a good app - they also will connect to others as well giFT connects to OpenFT (lotsa tunes there), FastTrack(KaZaa), and Gnutella at the same time. You former Shareaza users know what I'm talking about. mlDonkey connects to eDonkey/Overnet, Gnutella, FastTrack, soulseek, and others. There, that's my semi-snotty answer for the day. Now go download one of them and start sharing! I want your files!LOL
Is there a plugin/protocol for giFT to use the soulseek network? I am happy with what I find on the three networks, but it would be nice to have soulseek network too? or do i have to download mlDonkey.. i like just giFT
Not that I'm aware of...love to see an edonkey plugin too, but there are a few clients out there already that do it well. What I want is a BitTorrent client that downloads as fast as Shareaza did. I was getting speeds of ~1000k when a torrent took off (one was peaked at 2.7M!). Nothing else has come close. Now its 100-200k, if that. Ahh well. It works well regardless.
As a Gnutell2 client, it was a bit lacking, but when you enabled eDonkey, it started to rock. As a bittorrent client, it rocked! (actually, I have had torrents being shared by eDonkey and BitTorrent at the same time with it). But, KaZaa had better hits
