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.

Before all of you say, "search the forums, this topic has already been covered", I wanna let you know that I have and I can't find exactly what I'm looking for. I'm looking for a P2P client that will let me search for .mp3's by bitrate. I've been spoiled, I guess. I've only used Napster, Rapigator and WinMX for the past 4 years and I'm looking for a client that will allow me to find music at a specific bitrate. (128, 160, 192...etc.)
I've tried giFT and I currently have giFTcurs installed. It seems to work fine but I'd just like to be able to search for a specific quality. That doesn't seem like too much to ask. So before I install and try out EVERY P2P client, I was just wondering if someone could save me hours of time and let me know what you use to perform this task. Or maybe it's that I'm missing something and this feature is in my current client. I just can't find it. TIA.
well not to burst your bubble but 8 times outta 10 all the search results are going to have a bitrate 128 or higher...no matter what p2p client you use..so with that said, i think you can just use anything available to you, and i don't think thats really spoiled i think that your asking for something that doesn't really matter, so i will leave you with a list of clients that you can sort through. list from icewalkers 890+ results here and another 275+ apps
YES! I think lopster is what I am looking for. Thank You! I know that most .mp3's are going to be 128 or above, I'm just trying to make sure they are all exactly 192. I can hear the difference between .mp3's done at 160 and 192 even after normalization. It's just easier to me and more pleasing to my ears to dld at 192.
thank you for the lists. I added to my growing bookmarks of Linux Stuff.
well i just made that remark because 90% of p2p clients show the bitrate in the results, not saying you can't tell the difference, but when you see the search results you can see if its what you want or don't want...thats the point i was trying to get across to you...just in case lopster wasn't what you wanted, i just wanted you to realize what i was saying for you wouldn't have to settle with a program that you didn't like....so since thats cool with you, then your alll set now
thank you, DrOzz. I am trying lopster for now. but that doesn't mean I'll stick with it. One of the cool things about Linux is that you have the freedom to make choices about your software and how it is configured. So, if something better comes along, I'll feel free to give it a try. But it does seem to work the way I want it to. I did bookmark 'icewalkers'. I've never heard of it until now. I've only used sourceforge as a place to get software, so it was cool to find another place.
I'm more or less on a mission right now. I want to set-up my linux box where I don't have to turn the XP box at all. I've managed to knock out one more thing by using lopster. The only thing I have left is to get alba-extractor working, and come up with digital video editing stuff. But that's a whole new can of worms.
