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.

Personally I use gtk-gnutella which shares with bearshare, limewire and other gnutella clients. I also have limewire to do the same, and although some of the features with it are nice it's not as stable. Apollon seems to be one that many linux users like, but I haven't managed to get it working yet
yeah, gtk-gnutella is what i use, too and it works quite nicely.
it isn't quite as easy to use as, say, kazaa, on first acquaintance (eg, you need to let it build and cache a number of 'peers' on first starting, which was a bit off-putting at first), and the interface can be a little unintuitive, but it does a respectable job.
Limewire also provide a Linux client (although, as far as I know, all the Limewire clients are written in Java, so inherently cross-platform)..
Thanks fellas I really appreciate it....I tried lime wire but for some reason I can't get it working gives me a couple errors...so i tried qtella and that tells me I need more libs so I downloaded qtx11 but I can't get that working either I'm totally lost man this sux other then that I've gotten everything to work on my box but I NEED MP3'S!!
There are also clients available for the eMule/eDonkey network and BitTorrent. You could give those a try. I think most major P2P networks come with linux clients these days (we linux users like to share files too )
See that is one of my problems I'm not sure if I did the java vm right and I don't know how to make sure it's running properly. I'm a mess I know but I really dislike MS....u know I installed XP Home on my parents box last week went to install it on mine and I can't activate it because I did it on theirs.... F THEM F ALL THOSE MS BASTARDS!!
I would say that without question the best client is Apollon. It does Fasttrack (kazaa), Gnutella and OpenFT. Slick interface and superb functionality. It's a QT app, so if you use KDE it will integrate nicely with your desktop.
