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 recently installed RedHat Linux 9 on my PC. I have installed it as a server. I have a problem running Eclipse 3.0 on it. I am outlining below the steps I used to install Eclipse and have also pasted the error messages at the end.
1. Downloaded Eclipse 3.0 (eclipse-SDK-3.0M5-linux-gtk.zip)
2. Unzipped it using "unzip eclipse-SDK-3.0M5-linux-gtk.zip"
3. Changed to the /eclipse directory
4. Ran eclipse using ./eclipse
I get two error messages. One appears in a dialog box and the other on the command screen.
Warning: -os not understood. Ignoring.
Warning: -ws not understood. Ignoring.
Warning: -arch not understood. Ignoring.
Warning: -showsplash not understood. Ignoring.

Is this a problem of me not having the right libraries. I am a complete novice in Linux. Any help is appreciated
No, I don't know anything about eclipse other that I'm going be using it this year in my software design class here at UVA. The only thing that caught my attention was gcj in the error messages. I've been trying to purge my computer of all gcj related files ever since I made the mistake of building gcc with all frontends included. I'm using a lot of advanced features of Java for a project (i.e. JNI and native OpenGL calls) and gcj just doesn't cut it.
