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 don't know very much about environment variables, or linux yet for that matter, but when I'm at school I have to manually set the http_proxy=x.x.x.x:xx and ftp_proxy= env. variables if accessing the net from the console. Is there perhaps a variable for proxy username/pass?
Does your proxy server accept the "http://username@pass:ipaddress: port/" format? (no space between : and port at the end there, I added one so the dumb smiley face would go away.) If it supports it, you could probably enter that as the http_proxy variable. (I don't know if proxy's can do that, but a lot of websites will if you are attempting to directly access a user-ony area.)
I'm able to access http requests from my browser. Currently i'm using mozilla 1.7 on my slack 10.0 box.
Are u able to authenticate u'r self using slapt-get by setting the user name & passwd in your http url ?
