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 have Windows XP professional installed on my laptop (AMD64 processor) and I want to install Linux Suse 1.2/1.3. When I try to download the DVD ISO image internet explorer, download accelerator or mozilla finnish after 1.99 BG. The exact file size is more than 3GB.
You could try using a bittorrent client. Most distrib sites have links for bittorrent now, and that would cinch it for you; since bittorrent clients have error checking built in. Also, you might just try Getright or another download client that supports download resuming, to prevent interrupted downloads.
I hope this helps...
All my partitions are NTFS;
I have tried with DAP (download accelerator plus) which supports resuming. The problem is not that the transfer is stopped. It's simply finnishing, with no errors. It's like the file I'm trying to download has 1.99GB. In fact his real size is more than 3G http://ftp.sh.cvut.cz/MIRRORS/suse/p....2-FTP-DVD.iso ;
I can't use torrent clients or ftp because I'm behind a proxy (at my scool).
I can't connect to servers that run on different ports than 443 (HTTPS) and I can do browsing only on port 80.
Tried a different mirror? Depending on the FTP daemon they're running, I once found a site with a DVD image available but it said I needed to use rsync to get the file cause their software couldn't handle the 4+GB filesize. Meh I shouldn't have downloaded Fedora anyway
I can't use a ftp client because my ISP doesn't allow me. And if I bypass my proxy server restrictions with programs like your-freedom, hopster or anything I have maximum 8KB/s download speed. It would take a life time to download the image.
