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.

yes it is helpful. But I have downloaded the above mentioned tar.bz2. I need to install it. Just installl it. The page you adviced shows how to update repository and then download, but I already have downloaded it and need to install it.
Is there any reason why you didn't use the 'automated' way using the package manager? If you're new to Linux but want to use tarballs for installing the latest software, then you'll better learn how to extract a compressed tar file and use the ln command before doing it or use Google to search for howtos. LQ users are not very eager to spoon feed newbies because you will learn nothing that way. These two came up in milliseconds on Google.
That's the spirit! You'll learn a lot more and a lot faster what your system is all about if you research and try. If you consider your question/problem solved then please mark it as such using the Thread Tools.
