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.

Hi. I'm a newbie, so I still don't know what many things mean. Here's an example. I downloaded Cold Fusion MX onto my desktop, and then tried to install. This is Fedora 4, BTW. Below is how it went. What's the problem, how do I fix it for a successful install? I tried to address the Java problem by going back and installing anything that I saw was Java where it says to "add applications" or "add services", but no luck. What do the messages below mean? Google wasn't much help.
[root@pelican Desktop]# ./coldfusion-701-lin.bin -i gui
