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.

Note: I am so new to linux that I don't understand a code that you might tell me to enter into the terminal emulator if you don't include the 'knoppix@Microknoppix:~$' that automatically comes before it.
Anyway. I have knoppix installed on my hard drive. I like it that way, because it is the only way my old computer will work. I could use another computer, but I want to maximise this one first.
I want to download a torrent program on my computer. Would someone please direct me with a idiot's (forget dummy's, go full retard's) guide to putting a simple torrent program like utorrent (any small torrent program will do). I found at one time as thread that spoke of how on this site, but I cannot find it now. Also it said how to do it if knoppixs was run off a CD as it was intended. I need the 'knoppix is downloaded to my hard drive version.
Whatever torrent program that you recommend will be on my desktop when I download it.
