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.

The '-p' is unnecessary (even the '-v' is) and, while I thought they quit paying attention to it, having '-f' last is always a good idea. Looks like tar's taking the 'fjp' argument to mean a 'f'ile named 'jp'.
What you downloaded is the source code for Arson. What you have to do is compile the program inorder to run. In a terminal change directories to the Arson folder; cd "where/arson/is"
then type the following commands ./configure
su -c 'make install' <----- which will prompt the root password
I hope this helps. And just as digiot said, the readme and install documents usually lead you in the correct direction.
I think U done a small mistake.... make sure the file name correct... any single error or spelling mistake show such type of errors.... don't worry... retype the correct file name and path.... its easy....be patient and sure....
Hope this helps.....
zameer ahmed syed... and give the rating...
Hmmm... I'll install it on my machine and see if there is any missing steps.... I'll get back to ya' before the nights end. Another note is you shouldn't have to log in as root to run the program, only to install it.
