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.

hi there konsole and thanks for the response. It says at this link that i need JRE java runtime environment. I have the files i just dont know what to do with them or how to run them so i can setup java or azureus for that matter. I had them all going on win xp but i gave the boot for suse 10, its like starting all over again.
This is what I do, I like to install it into /usr/local/jre1.5.0_07.
So, as root,
move/copy the bin file to /usr/local
From a terminal
chmod +x jre-1_5_0_07-linux-i586.bin
Then you have to agree to the license and it will unpack everything.
You will now have a jre1.5.0_07 directory in /usr/local.
Two options here 1) you can expand $PATH to include /usr/local/jre1.5.0_07/bin or 2) (my preference as I like to keep $PATH simple) soft link all the binaries to somewhere in your path (in this example /usr/local/bin).
hi again thanks for your help, i stuffed it up, how do i uninstall it and start again or fix it up, i wanted me to replace the files and i accidently stuffed it up, now when java goes to install it stops after i say yes.
ok this is where im stuck i get to here and it asks me to
Do you agree to the above license terms? [yes or no]
