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 want to setup a server that runs Arch Linux commandline. Its duties would be file storage (Maybe backup) and BitTorrent downloads. I have tried in the past to try and get it working but wasn't completely successful. Can anyone help me with what packages/how I would go about setting it up?
However, when I set up rTorrent on a server of sorts, I would just leave it running, having it configured so that it would monitor a directory for torrents (a torrent repository, if you will). On any other computer, I would mount that torrent directory, over the network, through sshfs and when I downloaded a torrent, would just drop it into that mounted directory.
If you go to the rTorrent website, there is an easy-to-find page that gives you an absolutely wonderful example of a configuration file for rTorrent. In all honesty, I copy-and-paste that example every time I am setting up another "torrent server". The only things I change are some of the schedules, quotas, share ratios, and the names of the directories. It's a very helpful example.
