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.

Wondering if anyone has seen or heard of a linux program that can download stream sources and save them to the HD. There are a couple of win32 ones I've found and the latter (freeware) works great.
Hidownload (urls not allowed yet)
Net Transport (google for it)
As I understand it, they don't have to decode the wma stream, but they do launch multiple streaming processes (for speed) and stitch the source files back together.
There is a particular radio show that I like that is streamed as .wma via a .asx playlist. Once I capture the wma files, I can convert to mp3 and listen elsewhere on my iRiver or a cdrom.
I have been able to stream it and dump it with mplayer and lame, but then it takes 5 hours to capture a five hour show. It's encoded at 20kbps (talk radio) so the whole show only occupies about 50meg. With the above software (depending on how many processes I launch) I can suck the whole thing down in about 25 minutes.
It would be great if there were something like wget that could understand mms:// and rtsp:// URLs.
