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.

There is a windows ssh client from www.ssh.com that comes as a two applications. One is a simple console that gives you a command line and the other is a secure ftp app. It is probably the worlds easiest program to use. There are two windows, one shows your files, the other shows the servers files...drag and drop.
It's not a true ftp client, but a graphical frontend for scp'ing files back and forth. It's nice for situations like his where you want to allow inexperieced users to transfer files via ssh without them having to use the commandline and without you having to setup a true ftp server. There is also a freeware version (Winscp) if you're not at an educational institution, but I've never tried it.
Distribution: Mandrake 9.2 =<3 and Red Hat 8.0 (server)
Use the client from SSH.com. It works wonderful and it doesn't matter what the other guys said about not being a true console or whatever. This is for someone that wants to transfer files back and forth and the SSH client is just like an FTP client, but with security built in.
