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 used Lopster and Mldonkey, but don't expect the same kind of result you get with Kazaa or WinMX most of these have more of a Gnutella feel to them. They are good programs but don't have the massive amounts of users Kazaa or WinMX. Is that good or bad? You can deside for your self.
If you get the fasttrack plugin, you should get exactly the same hits as KaZaa, since its their network, you'd be using. Apollon works reasonably well for KaZaa network access (and OpenFT seems to have a fair amount of music). Any of the eDonkey clients are good for finding music.
I have best results with giFT using the FastTrack,gnutella, and openFT protocols. There are several front ends for giFT. If you want user friendly gui's try giFToxic for gnome and apollon for kde. most people use giFTcurs I believe which is a cursed frontend. Find out more here
