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 have a laptop and desktop (both with ethernet ports) running suse 9.3, and I want to exchange files between them (preferably without networking), is there any application that works well for file transfer. Thanks.
Use a crossover cable connected between both machines.
Navigate to the other machines share and transfer files. You can use Konqueror if you use KDE. smb://machinename or fish://machinename. Or you can mount the shares manually or use smb4k or Lin neighborhood or nautilus will show shares. I think that you could FTP also. I never used SuSE but just connect them and navigate to the share. That would be the fastest transfer rate. You will have to have file sharing enabled on both machines. You can write to the users home dir without being root. You could also connect a lap link cable between each machines parallel port. That will be rather slow though.
