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.

there are some websites that need java.
so i downloaded it from the java website i installed the jre-1_5_0_07-linux-i586.bin binary file.
so when entering the website that needs the java ,i got message :"there was pblm accessing".
did you set the symlink to the plugins folder for libjavaplugin_oji.so ?
You don't have to do it this way, but on my system the file in my home folder in the .mozilla directory is linked to the one in the java folder. I am my only user on my system so thats why its done this way.
~/.mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so is a symbolic link to `/usr/lib/java/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so'
who knows, do one at a time Launch Mozilla after the first one, and if it don't work then try the next one. Another thing is, if you launch Mozilla and go to Help-> About Mozilla and you see the version is 1.7.2 then its probably going to be the last one Trial and Error.
I just want you to make sure you did each and every step. This is straight from the java website. All pages should technically work. If you don't mind, can you link the site that you have problems with, so we can see if it displays on our systems ? If not then thats fine, I would just be curious to know.
Mozilla 1.4 and later
Go to the plugins sub-directory under the Mozilla installation directory
cd <Mozilla installation directory>/plugins
In the current directory, create a symbolic link to the JRE ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so file Type:
ln -s <JRE installation directory>/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
If Mozilla is installed in this directory:
and if the JRE is installed at this directory:
Then type at the terminal to go to the browser plug-in directory:
Enter the following command to create a symbolic link to the Java Plug-in for the Mozilla browser.
ln -s /usr/java/jre1.5.0/plugin/i386/ns7
Start Mozilla browser or restart it if it is already running. Note that if you have other Mozilla components (ie: Messenger, Composer, etc) running, you will need to restart them as well.
