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.

Port of eMule, a new filesharing client which is based on the eDonkey2000
network, but offers more features than the standard eDonkey client, because
it's free software. http://rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/freshrp...-fr1.i386.html
Alternativly xmule just look on google for more info
gtk-gnutella is spyware free. There are good folks involved in the software project. That does not mean there are not "hostiles" out there trying to look for people who might be sharing files potentially considered proprietory, which can be true on any public network. Oh yes, I am sure the US government is still trying to find those WMD that iraq has hidden somewhere, so there may be a few governent spies as well :-) gtk-gnutella does provide a list of "hostiles" which the program uses to block.
I cannot tell you the size of the network, though it is big enough that I find most of what I am looking for and people seem to find enough they are looking for on my machine to keep it reasonably but not outrageously busy. The program is small is size (not a resource hog) and highly configurable as to easy just to run continually.
Limewire is not so bad. Although it's not quite as configurable as I'd like it to be the network seems to be big enough that I find what I'm looking for. I still like gtk-gnutella and eMule better though.
