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.

This is pissing me off really bad.I want to execute a java program which has to connect to a database and i have seen that redhat 7.2 provides postgresql database server. i have looked at the postgresql.conf file and all the lines are commented(all lines start with #). i could start the postgresql server and su - postgres and create a database.but i donot see postgresql in the netstat output because i heard that it has to connect to port 5432 (i remove the commnet from that line in the postgresql.conf file) to be able to use jdbc driver version 2.Btw i downloaded pgjdbc2.jar from postgresql sit e and renamed it to postgresql.jar. even now i get a class not found error on Class.forName("org.postgresql.Driver"); line in my java program.i have also uncommented the tcpip_socket=true . but i dont know if i have to uncomment any other line in postgresql.conf or if i have to get jdbc driver for my java1.4 version or ??????????
