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.

Can someone try this and see if this happens? Download one of the .txt.gz archive files on this page: https://www.redhat.com/archives/amd64-list/ , and you should be able to open it. Now download one using wget, and the file can't be uncompressed because it is not a gzip file! What is happening!?
The smaller files seem to be plain text but I can reproduce the problem with the larger ones. Often the connection is interrupted and the download resumes automatically, and this results in a bad file. Is there any way around this? Downloading the file in Firefox works fine but I need to use wget (or something similarly non-interactive).
