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 could run the script from terminal. My script invokes some installation and works fine. But my wish is that end-user should double click the sh script and it should run.
But how? I got few links - but none was of was quite helpful.........
You can run the shell script by a double-click on it, by following the below steps:
> Create the script and save it in a file.
> Right click on that file.
> Goto 'Open With'
> Goto 'Open With other application
> You can find 'Use a custom command' at the bottom. Click on that.
> Click on 'Browse'
> Select 'gnome-terminal' from the files in the /usr/bin/
> Click on 'Add'
> Then click on 'Close'
Now whenever you double click on that file it will run in the terminal.
And if you want to edit that file, open it with vi editor or right click and select open with any other editor.
