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 was looking at the host list. Now, those are individual computer IPs you've hooked up to over the years? Or how does that work? So if I want to allow other users to share my files, how would I get my IP onto everyone's list?
That's why I thought there was one central area that gnutella kept a list of hosts. I guess I don't know alot about how this works.
if you're interested in network theory i'd strongly recommend looking at an oreilly book called "peer to peer, harnessing the power of disruptive technology" as its SO damn interesting, and exaplin in great detail about hosts files and such. basically tho, the more random the better, so taking a hosts file that's been in use for over 6 months is a much more reliable way to get string conenctions all over the newtork, and not just centered in one place, which can result from standard host finders.
Ok, I got 0.85 up and running. This time it had 3 or 4 preset host numbers in there so I'm downloading some songs right now (must be the "standard" host finders you're talking about)! I appreciate all your help so far, just a couple of quick questions and I should be happy:
I configured, compiled, installed, etc. and then went into xterm and started it. Now while I'm running qtk-gnutella, I just leave that terminal running in the background? Also it keeps giving me warnings like the following. Is this normal?
**WARNING**: search request (hops=7, ttl=1) has 143 extra bytes after NUL
It looks like it is giving me these constantly. Anyway, my first file is done and I'm going to go listen to it!! Thanks!
oh yeah all that stuff is fine. the one thing i would mention abuot the newer versions is that they do have a few slightly odd default configuration values in ~/.gtk-gnutella/config if you choose a bunch of files and they just sooo don't seem interested in downloading, look at the config file and change the relative timeouts. as yet there's no way to do it via GUI.
