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 removed all the sources and started all over again, pressing Finish and restarting Installation Sources after each new repo. Now it is taking a long time with Guru (ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/suser-guru/rpm/10.1) whether I try to add it as http or ftp. Is there an issue with Guru?
There sure is a problem with Yast Package Manager and its something all know about. Right now, I have Yast2 package manager running. I launched it 30 minutes before and it hasn't finished loading yet !!
Personally I prefer smart package manager as it is robust and a lot faster ! It's easy to configure and use. Yet, occasionally I use Yast2 to download security patches.
Download smart from guru's site which comes preconfigured with several repositories. Smart handles dependencies better too.
