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 get the instruction to dig up an application/x-java-vm plug-in. I downloaded and installed the whole JSDK thing from Sun. Now I have tried to put the JAVAHOME=/usr/java
# /usr/java points to /usr/j2sdk_nb/j2sdk1.4.2
in several locations:
and when I reboot and ask echo $JAVAHOME or echo $PATH my RedHat Linux 8.0 sez "What do ya mean, 'java'?" It seems to know about /root/bin and /usr/sbin 3-5 times over, though.
Can somebody help me figure out/point me to the right place to read up on how environment variables get set at start-up and, perhaps, if there is any trick to get Mozilla know the VM is there? Right now I would even settle for a way to tell Mozilla about VM, so I can see the JRE in action.
