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.

Read that, follow it, follow the links provided in it, and you should be able to get it set up relatively easily.
That said, again, Acid's right. Delete Limey. The pain you go through setting it up isn't worth it in the end. Gtk-gnutella is just as good.
To install that program (yes a search would have revealed the answer, and in the future please use that excellent feature):
(All in the command line)
tar xvzf filename.tar.gz
Each of those steps should complete without errors, and you should do this as root.
master & acid,
i got stuck at your first step itself
i logged in as root , and typed this
tar xvzf gtk-gnutella-0.90.tar.gz
and this is the error message that i got
tar (child) : tar xvzf gtk-gnutella-0.90.tar.gz: Cannot open: no such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar child returned status 2
tar Error exit delayed from previous errors
as i told you i am an absolute beginner. I don't even know the basics. Please help me.
