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 run Shareaza 188.8.131.52 with WINE 0.9.42, and I'm wondering if it's possible to make it handle magnet links. I've noticed that WINE applications can interact with native ones (example: opening URLs with Firefox), but what about the other way around?
There is a sourceforge page for the Linux Shareaza project, dunno whats with the site though - couldn't find anything there.
Note: It's not a good idea to call people you don't know "dear" in an international forum. In almost all English speaking countries it is insulting. (Outside a formal letter or a marriage.) Just a heads up.

Shareaza (especially the latest version) is actually BETTER than Limewire. To start with, it gets the same search results (assuming you aren't using a filter) because connects to the same network, and will connect to up to 5 ultra-peers (which is EXACTLY what Limewire Pro does that gives you "better/faster results" and whatnot. It also connects to Gnutella2, its own network, as well as eDonkey2000 and Bittorrent. So Shareaza is basically Limewire Pro PLUS G2/eD2k/BT and MINUS the hideous Java interface. The only downside is that it only runs on Windows or WINE, although it could be ported to other platforms because it's Free Software.
