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.

You can try downloading it from here. There are very few sites that offer the DVD as download instead of the torrents because of the size. Downloading a DVD will take up quite some resources and time no the server side and that's why most sites don't offer them. It's quite normal that people use the torrents to download a DVD. Only one (the one listed above) out of four principal download sites here in Spain offers the DVD. You could also search through the other mirrors yourself to find one closer to you that offers the DVD.
I hope I can download file from here successfully.
And Erictra, I cannot download it from my home (from torrent) as I have download limit from my ISP. The internet speed in my office is awesome, thus was looking for downloading a DVD from office network
I had to create an account just so I could respond the previous thread. The mirrors at centos.org don't have the DVD. Please do not post a typical answer to a specific inquiry. Just read the question and make sure your answer at least helps in some way, or don't post it.
