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 like the bittorrent client that comes with slack, it is in the /extras on disc 2. Althougth it is only a ncurses display, I think. Another great client that I have used is azureus. You can find it at sourceforge . I like it because it is written completely in java, so what ever platform you are on Linux, Windows, Mac it will run granted you have the java plugin.
i user azureus, and thats really simple ... find torrent file, copy link location and "open url" in azureus ...
it needs java, but it's the best client i have seen.
if you use gnome, there is a simple client called gnome-torrent or something like that ... it's pretty simple, functioning great, but it opens for every download a new window. it's better than azureus, because it isn't java-based and it doesn't eat memory.
