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.

After two failed tries searching for torrents in this forum, I am now making a new post.
I tried getting the CD ISO images through torrent. But after announce was sent, the connection was refused. So now I'm downloading them directly from FTP mirrors. They all have over 100MB/s bandwidth, but I'm averaging about 20k. My own bandwidth is 10MB/s up and down. Am I the only one with this kind of problem?
I'm using Deluge. With it, I've brought down a plethora of things. Even though I only pay for 10Mb/s, yesterday a file leveled out at 2,2MBytes/s. I might try to install a different client. But I really don't like to be refused in that way. I could accept being banned from various closed trackers, but that really oughtn't apply to Slackware.
I haven't tried with torrent again. But if it is a CD ISO from a Slackware mirror, then it's slow. Direct download of FTP. Now it averages between 3 to 6kb/s. As a reference, I brought down a Debian ISO and it leveled out at 800+ kb/s.
Maybe I would too, if I were not refused to connect. The direct downloads picked up speed once I disabled Quality of Service in the gateway (I fiddled with it yesterday). The Deluge bittorrent client functioned with other downloads meanwhile.
