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 downloaded libevent from both sourceforge and the originating monkey.org and whenever I try to access the archive, I get an error stating that "there was an error with the archive" (ark) or "the file does not exist" (gunzip). So is this just me or is there a problem with the file? Thanks again for the assistance.
i too have been attempting to download and unpack libevent-1.1.tar.gz (for tor) from monkey.org for a week or so now - i'm fairly new to linux, but i've never had this problem so far - everything i download i can unpack fine.
i have tried redownloading the file from the homepage - multiple times - and i've even downloaded all other versions (old and the newest one) with the same result. i've used firefox and konqueror, i've tried opening the files directly rather than downloading them and i get the same result each time.
does anyone know why this may be? this is REALLY doing my head in and i don't want to admit defeat by switching to windows to download and unpack this thing........
