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.

Hey guys, I'm in the process of installing this game "Wyvern"
I'm pretty much done except for this last part, I don't understand.
* To run the Wyvern Client, create a launcher for your system that contains the following command. (Assumes you've installed it in the directory: /wyvern/client
java -Dwyvern.home="/wyvern/client/wyvern" \
-cp "wyvernclient.jar;jl020.jar;jogg-0.0.5.jar;jorbis-0.0.12.jar;mp3sp.1.5.jar;vorbisspi0.7.jar" \
* Run your newly-created launcher to run the client.
On Unix-based systems, the semicolons in the "-cp" parameter should be replaced with colons.
I'm not sure on what it means by "Create a launcher"
it means create a button to execute this command.
If you use KDE do a right clik in the desktop->new->file->link to application, and fill the proper fields
I gnome KDE's "link to application" is called Application Laucher.
This is one command, not three. When you put a \ in the end of the line it means that the command will continiue in the next line. You do that to prevent of having very long lines. its exactly the same as writting in a console:
The command is java (the java interprinter), u use it when u have to execute the class wyvern.client.Client and you specify that the value of the property "wyvern.home", is /wyvern/client/wyvern, and you specify with -cp a list of jar files wyvernclient.jar:jl020.jar:jogg-0.0.5.jar:jorbis-0.0.12.jar:mp3sp.1.5.jar:vorbisspi0.7.jar, to search for needed classes.
