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.

Theres d4X (downloader for X) http://freshmeat.net/releases/99346/ (should be a link to it's homepage there) that's GUI and there a quite few others, but this is often the most talked about and used, or if you wanna go console theres always the trusty 'wget'
Yeh i'm currently using ProzGui too cause i personally haven't got D4X installed hehe (couldn't be bothered sorting out dependecies) but ProzGUi installed great and easy so your best bet is to try that first....
I am using prozgui as well but I am not quite happy for the following reason:
I am at the uni accomodation right now and I am using a wireless connection which is very unstable.
I noticed that when i download mp3s and i get disconnected, mp3s are not downloaded correctly. Sometimes I can hear "scratches" when i playback the mp3.
It does not happen when for example I download the same file using just the firefox browser...
