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 download this file and it came as a .exe file. I tried running ./configure, but that didn't do nothing. I seriously have no ideal how to install these programs under llinux. Can someone please show me an example on how to execute these files.
There is only one other problem. I download LimeWire but it came with a .bin extension. I'm not sure how to work with these files. I tried the command "bash Li* " which went throught the install process then it stopped and said that I have to install VM prior installing this. The thing ist that I have VM installed all ready and it keeps saying that.
Can you guys help me, I'm a super newb in the linux are but one day i want to become very familiar with it as I am with windows.
there's *plenty* of help about limewire on this site already, have a search. but...
WHY do you want limewire? people get so confused by that huge lump of crap cos it's in java. where did you find out about it? do you know that there are LOTS of native linux gnutella applicaions around? lok for gtk-gnutella or qtella as a start.
It is refering to Java VM (virtual machine), do you have java installed? If it came as a part of kaffe you need to uninstall kaffe and install jre or jsdk from either http://java.sun.com or http://www.blackdown.com, then you need to adjust your $PATH env variable to point to java, and run LimeWire setup again. Search these forums for LimeWire and Java, it's been explained in a dozen of threads here
