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 think my Windows is shot. So my computer is now Linux based for the time being.
I was given tutorials that will take me months to master. It's just that I can't go away from my daily tasks. I am down to this one pc.
I need help with torrents. I downloaded Vuze 4.3 for Linux (Azureus). I also have Wine installed.
When I tried to download a torrent, for example, an application, a box pops up.
Open with Transmission bit torrent(default)
Which option should I go with? And what destination should I send it to?
It defaults to desktop, which I dont have the space. And when I directed it to 145.6 Gig media, I cannot find the file in there.
From the OS icon below your name I'm assuming you're using Ubuntu. If you want to download with Vuze then you'll need to save the file and open it after download with Vuze or select Vuze directly to open the torrent so that downloading starts immediately.
What do you mean with 'no space on the desktop'? And the other partition you pointed at? How is it that you cannot find a file in a partition when you previously save it yourself to that same partition?
I am getting errors now. It's saying it cannot save to desktop because there is no space.
this is what i have when i open places>computer:
1.0 gb media
5.1 gb media
145.6 gb media
Compact Flash Drive
Memory stick drive
smart media drive
Where can I save my large files and how can i retrieve it? I tried to save a file at one time to the 145.6 gb drive because of it's size but when I tried to retrieve the file, I cannot find it under 145.6 gb media. It's just a bunch of folders that I cannot understand.
And what if you would create a directory on the 145.6 gb media so that you could find your file after downloading?
Also it seems strange to me that you don't have any space left on your Desktop. How did you setup your Ubuntu partitioning when you installed? Or have you already downloaded a lot?
Actually no. I just started. I just went with the defaults when I installed Ubuntu. I did not change anything.
How can I look up how Ubuntu partitioned the hard drive? And can I still make changes to it?
I will try and create a folder in the 145 gb drive and see what happens.
