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.

JAVA_HOME is more like an environment variable for users, placing this in an rc.local or startup script isn't going to do anything for you. You should place this in the global /etc/profile or in each users individual .bash_profile or .bashrc.
And next time use a more descriptive thread title, "Help [URGENT]" doesn't describe your problem and members here help people like you in their own free time, you're issue is no more important than the next members so don't tag threads as urgent.
Sorry, the readahead.early.files is just a sanity check which I like to add startup scripts to, etc. To have rc.loop start, you have to create a script to invoke it as well. You can add it to rc.local but it's probably better to have it's own so it's independent from rc.local
Like rc.local is called by S99local usually in each rcX.d directory in /etc/rc.d
