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 do have anjuta install on my machine and i had the impression that i could run and compile java programs, but it seems that i was wrong i get an error "javac cannot be found", so i went to http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/download.html in order to download the file, i couldnt find it, could someone help me out here... thanks
That site is for the Java development kit. You could install that and I believe it would work, but chances are you only want the runtime environment. You can download that from sun.com. I think Slack has a j2re package now, but I'm not sure -- you might want to check the CDs or a mirror.

Didn't you read the OP's post? He/she wants to compile programs, and was complaining that "javac" doesn't work. I don't think your link is to the right place , and actually java.sun.com is precisely the site to download both the development kit and the runtime environment (download page here). You want to go to "JDK 5.0 Update xx", accept the license agreement, get the "Linux self-extracting file", then run it. Search for "Java" in the forums for more information.
thanks guys, i did download and install the package..... i do use the NetBeans 4.1 for develping my projects now.... but i was wondering how could i compile the programs using my shell.... i tried java filename.java but it didnt work.... any help would be appreciated.
