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.

Java - use j2re1.4.2 and put a symbolic link to /j2re1.4.2_02/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so in Mozilla's plugins folder.
Flash, copy libflashplayer.so into Mozilla's plugins folder. The libstdc++ libs that are installed by Fedora are only the newest ones. They won't work with Flash plugin. The answer is to find and install the backward compatible version of those libs. The RPM filename is compat-libstdc++(verion).rpm . I got that from this thread. http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=33636
I don't know about the realplayer problem. Put the error message into google and see what you get.

1. Download the latest and greatest java rpm from java.com. Substitute the latest version number in these steps. Copy it in the root directory. (or where ever you want.) Note, where it says "[tab]" this means to use the tab key to "autocomplete" the line instead of typing the complete file name.
2. cd /root
3. sh j2[tab] (unpack the self-extracting binary)
3. rpm -ivh j2[tab] (install the RPM file)
4.Make a soft link from the plugin to the Mozilla plugin directory Note! All on one line! And don't forget to use the TAB key! Also note, it's jre1 the number one, not the letter "L"
