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 just downloaded my first ever tar.gz file and thought I knew what i was doing but I don't. I extracted the file gtk-gnutella-0.92.1c.tar.gz to my Programs directory, and then according to the install guide for the program it said to do these three things:
The problem is that ./configure doesn't seem to be a valid bash command for my console. It says:
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
I did man ./configure and ./configure --help, but didn't get any results. Can someone tell a newb what he's done wrong? THanx
You will need to change into the directory that is created when you untar the tarball
Then, you can go about your business, first thing should ALWAYS be reading the INSTALL or README files though, not configuring as this would be a clue as to whether you are able to configure or what you actually need to do
just what it says hehe don't run it as root so if your in the terminal as the root user, then type "exit" to return to regular user, or type "su username" where username is your user and then run gnutella
