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.

1. After using utorrent in windows, and using a plethora of other torrent utils in Linux- like Azureus, BitTornado etc., I find that the utorrent downloads were sort of faster. Like I'd get d/l speeds up to 30-40 kbps on utorrent but in other more native clients like TOrnado, Azureus, I can barely get 8-10 kbps. For the EXACT same torrents too.
Basically is utorrent really more efficient in handling downloads?? Or is it just my luck or something???
Utorrent & Wine
2. As I install utorrent for linux using wine, I can run & open the utorrent app fine. I've also specified the download, save paths etc. However, when I try and see the folder utorrent's downloading onto, it's blank. I can see the file w/ wine file browser, but not w/ the file browser. Or even in script...anyone else experience the same probs? Any rectification tips? Thanx.
I have not never used a Win Torrent client through wine on Linux, so I won't be of much help technically with your query, however, I have to ask, why don't you use KTorrent for nix? http://ktorrent.org/ It is a highly configurable Torrent client.
Just out of curiosity, what other Torrent clients for Linux would other members of the forum recommend? I have only used KTorrent to date and would appreciate any feedback on the possibility of a better client being out there.
I only post the Q in this thread as I think it could be relevant and also helpful to the OP. If it is classed as a thread hijack, I will be happy to move the Q to an individual thread.
