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.

Find out what directory the executable is. You might be able to do this by typing "whereis limewire". When it shows you where it is, just type that into the prompt (probably something like "/usr/local/bin/limewire &" or something).
If whereis doesn't work, type "cd /", and then "find . -name limewire" to locate the executable.
I'm having the same problem here and followed the instructions for sh ./LimeWireLinux.bin but I'm getting this message:
Preparing to install...
Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
Configuring the installer for this system's environment...
No Java virtual machine could be found from your PATH
environment variable. You must install a VM prior to
running this program.
I can't find one under PACKAGES to install. Where do I need to go to get one of these!
I can't do this. I am told that 'the file cannot be saved.'
Trying a different tack I double clicked the freshly extracted RPM and it started to look like it was going to install something. Hoping for the best I then tried to install limewire again but got the same message about java not being installed.
I know I'm new with all this but everytime I try and do something I discover it to be hideously complex and even simple how-to guides seem to assume you have a degree in programming! I guess I'll get there in the end....
