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'm running FreeRapid v.81 which is an auto downloader for Rapidshare files in Linux Mint 6 (Ubuntu 8.10). When I try using the auto shutdown option I get "System command "shutdown" is not supported or defined on this system. Check your settings in the file "syscmd.properties". In the syscmd.properties file it shows the following:
# The commands are called from the application (eg. shutdown system, when all downloads are complete).
# This configuration file has a syntax of Java properties file (key=value, # - line comment. \n - new line, \t - tabulator).
# Application searches for this file in its configuration directory as first (~/.APPCODE),
# then it searches for this file in application's home directory.
# It's recommended to copy this file to its configuration directory (~/.APPCODE) for easier upgrading to newer version of the application.
# ***** RUNTIME VARIABLES ******
# You can insert following variables into your values. These variables will be replaced on runtime.
# %DIR% - current application directory (absolut path) - like /home/userid/appname
# %VERSION% - application version - eg. 0.65
# %PRODUCT% - product name - SuperSoftware
# %APPVERSION% - product name + version - eg. SuperSoftware 0.65
# %AUTHORS% - one line info about authors - eg. (c) Vity 2008
