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've been searching for a decent p2p programs, and i came across gift, so i installed whatever were necessary and the server plugins. however, it doesn't seem to have a lot of files. all i want from a p2p program is to share classical music (heh). there were only about 3 sources averaging my searches, and i was only able to download 1 music that day.
so does anyone know of a good p2p software that deals with a lot of music files? preferably classical music. i'd really appreciate any inputs.
Try gtk-gnutella ( http://gtk-gnutella.sourceforge.net/ ), which I find to be a great client, though I really do not know what you will be able to find in terms of classical music. There happens to be a new release today, though I prefer the cvs version. If you compile your own, you have to get used to the ./Configure (versus ./configure) script which does not use automake per usual.
When you tried giFT, did you use the FastTrack (Kazaa) plugin as well as the openFT and gnutella plugins. The FastTrack plugin is not distributed with the rest of giFT, but if you search the giFT site, you'll find this link to it:
If you have these three plugins, then you've seen pretty much everything that people are offering in P2P, since these are the three major networks used by all P2P programs. That's why I would say that giFT is probably the best P2P program, since you can trade in each of these networks, and if any others are developed, there will probably be a plugin offered for those as well.
Cerbere: i'm pretty sure those three plugins were installed since i installed this package: gift-plugins-0.0.1burn-i686-1 and its description includes "...openFT, gnutella, and FastTrack (KaZaA) plugins."
or should i try compiling the individual plugins myself? it's been a week i guess so i don't remember much but i did edit the config file thing for gift so it'll use those plugins. maybe i'll try again.
k i installed gift again, still using the plugins package (a slackware package from linuxpackages.net) and giftcurs. it found about--WHOA! 3806824 users online. hmm. that didn't happen before. heh.
it was just over 20k users but i guess i can't complain. haha.
the searches are pretty slow but that's fine with me. i got loads of time from procrastination
