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 a newbie using RHEL Update 3. Currently i am installing an application by reading thru the installation guide. I'm stuck with this step:
"All of the configuration actions described in this chapter are performed using the rtminst program. This program is installed as a part of adlexrtm and can be accessed through the command rtminst. You need to have root privileges to execute the rtminst command from the operating system prompt."
As quoted from the manual, i has already logged on as root privileges and went into the terminal shell command. I have searched thru the directories inside the mounted installation cd but i couldn't really find any program named rtminst or adlexrtm. i tried to type the command 'rtminst' into the terminal but it doesn't recognize it.
Any of you would have some ideas of this? Is the rtminst a predefined command from Linux or something?
I have been searching out the whole CD directories but i just couldn't find any files with the name 'rtminst' or the other one. However, i have found one .bin file (if i'm not wrong, *.bin is the Linux's executable file?) on the CD, when i doubleclicked it nothing happens. How do i execute it in the terminal command?
If it is an executeable, you could try starting it from the shell as root:
sudo sh /path/to/cdrom/rtminst.bin
Extensions are only a convenience in Linux. The properties are what is important. You may not be able to execute programs directly from a CD if it is mounted with the "noexec" option. That is the reason I used "sh ". For example, this is how I would run the installer program to install Civilization. Double clicking on the Icon wouldn't work.
You still haven't given information on what you are trying to install. There probably is a file that will tell you how to start the installation.
If this is the Network Analysis system, then it must be old because Adlex was aquired by Compuware according to all my Google inquiries. And the installation seems to use a flash based web installer.
