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.

is the file in that java folder? from you error message, it doesn't look like you put the file in that folder. is that java folder /usr/java? you need to either copy the or move *.bin file from your download directory to /usr/java. where did you download the *.bin file at?
well you need to run the bin file first you shouldn't have to move anything. in the shell use these commands. make sure your paths use the correct upper or lowercase letters.
# cd /home/jeremy/documents
# enter root password: ******
the question is what java package did you get. if you got the self extracting rpm, then all you have to do is click the rpm file or use the command:
# rpm -ivh java*.rpm
i just usually grab the self extracting rpm. i never used any other java install packages, so i don't really know what those instructions would be. i'm going to assume that you got the same java package as in the link posted earlier. try following those directions if you didn't get the self extracting rpm package.
[thd0n@Svr1 thd0n]$ cd java (my directory i creaed in home) [thd0n@Svr1 java]$ ls -1
j2re-1_4_2_03-linux-i586.bin [thd0n@Svr1 java]$ chmod u+x j2re-1_4_2_03-linux-i586.bin [thd0n@Svr1 java]$ ./j2re-1_4_2_03-linux-i586.bin
