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 was trying to download from Carrol U using KBEAR. It wouldn't let me drag over the whole folder. For some reason it would drop the connection. I don't want to sit there and manually download each and every package if I don't need it. What server did you get your's from? I'm sure you just copied the whole folder via an FTP client, right?
I think the problem is with the mirror, i received an error while trying to connect through Firefox(Error: there are too many connections of your class(25)....... User:Anonymous Permission Denied).......
You get that error if you try to make more than 4 connections at once. Using KBear, I could drag and drop single files, but It disconnects when trying to copy the entire folder. I have a very stable connection. I download 2+ GB DVD ISOs in the 600Kb/s range without so much as a blip, so this is unusual for me. I'll do some more looking in to it tonight. Thank you for all of your help, abattoir!
Cool. I'll try it when I get home tonight. wget is new to me. I've read Harley Hahn's guide to Unix, but I'm beginning to think I might need an offline, hard copy Linux reference for the simple things. Thanks!
