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.

so far I tried DAP, internet explorer and mozilla to download this file...
now I'm trying HiDownload...
But I think that the problem is within the proxy server.
This is the proxy server identification string (captured with ethereal):
Server: Apache/1.3.33 (Debian GNU/Linux) PHP/4.3.10-15
The people at my scool don't know anything. It's very good for them that linux servers come with very good default configurations ( that is very likely to fit one needs). Otherwise they would leave the job .
Ask the computer tech at school to download it and burn it for you, I was on reasonably good terms with the guy at my high school since he was the teacher for a couple of my classes and before I got broadband he downloaded a burned a few things for me from the other side of our proxy.
I went to my ISP and asked him to let me use direct connection in order to download what i needed and he agreed (although he didn't like it ).
I'he downloaded the image, so the problem is within the apache proxy server.
