Best “All in One” E-texts I can hand out to newbies
I have these meetings the first Saturday of every month where a bunch of folks from the local area get together and talk about computer/network security. I’ve noticed recently that a lot of the presentations are flying over some of the folks heads, like when I started to explain Nmap and OS fingerprinting to someone and found out they did not know what a port was. What I’m asking for is advice on any e-texts I could print off and give to new folks to catch them up on TCP/IP networks, and maybe a 2nd one that covers the basics of computer security. What are the best one stop e-texts out there that I could give out that would get people up to speed enough to understand the more experienced folks presentations? Any suggestions?

you really need to search around for ebooks.. you probably will be finding pdf's instead of txt's.
search google for "oreilly ebooks"
this link has a few good things but they are pretty much higher level stuff.
maybe you can grab pieces that might apply.
somewhere I had saved other links for ebooks I'll look around and pm you if I can find them.

Don't forget the sans reading room or security focus
Lots of good papers there.
is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.
