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 Downloaded "mc-4.6.0.tar.gz" and used command "tar -xvzf mc-4.6.0.tar.gz" for extracting , then I typed command "cd mc-4.6.0" , then I typed "./configure" but apear this error:
"bash: ./configure: No such file or directory "
Please help me about this problem
Distribution: OpenBSD, Debian Sarge, Ubuntu, FreeBSD, Gentoo Linux
first thing that could have happened is that the tar file is corrupted.
So give it another go and download it again, it might just work.
If that doesn't help, do an "ls" in the mc-4.6.0 directory, and see what you find there. It might just be that you have to go one directory further before you can install.
Also, when inspecting the dir with "ls", look for the well-known README file(s). Don't be affraid to read them too, they might just tell you how to install that beautiful piece of software, maybe it uses some shell script or another type of installer instead of the normal configure-make-make install stuff.
