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.

it's not the actual thing that you tell to download stuff.. it's a background program, and you use clients on top of it, such as Apollon, and giFTcurs, etc (they're all on the giFT site). http://gift.sourceforge.net/
Personally I found Bit torrent to be a little too slow for me. As for p2p's... I got rid of them along with Windows... I think a year ago? =)
If you want to listen to classical music you can go to, [url =www.di.fm]Digitally imported[/url]. I personally think this site is great (Classical music is found at the bottom).
If you want to get the songs you're listening to from the stream... here is what you gotta do.
Make sure that you...
1) Have XMMS started, and you're listening to the stream...
2) Have a terminal ready so that you can streamrip
3) Stop the stream when you're done listening to it. =)
Streamripper can be found (it's free) [url = http://streamripper.sourceforge.net] here [/url].
To streamrip, all you gotta do is this...
$ cd /path/to/music/dir
This part is where you have XMMS ready. Make sure that you have the playlist showing too... then you right click on the name. View the info on it... then just copy and paste it's URL to the terminal.
$ streamripper path.to.host:8000
The port may vary, I was just using that as an example. It also should continue going until you issue termination (ctrl+c, or ctrl+d). Make sure you keep track of it or it will start taking up hard disc space like no tomorrow =)
