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.

Arghhh I had so much diffculties with installing amule/bittorrent at regular stuff and somehow it failed! I even opened a few topics and no one could have helped me I think since I done all right (I think).
and also tried the regular ./configure && make
Somehow, amule/bittorrent worked, only with yum!
What can u say about that? do u think u know what I've done wrong?
I assume you are using Fedora Core. YUM is the recommended package manager for FC4, so I am not suprised if package installation works well using it. Compiling from source should have worked fine as well, but sometimes you may experience problems with missing dependencies or other compilation issues.
Try Suse or Mandriva if you want to use an rpm based distro with lots of gui utils. Fedora Core is good though, you may need to install yumex if you don't want to use yum from the cli. In FC5 there will be a gui tool called PUP for package management.
