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 just downloaded and installed sun's version of the java2RE: I ran the self-extracting archive (as root, cause they told me to do so) and added the install-path /usr/local/java/j2re... to my path. OK, I thought. So I ran 'java -version' (still root) and it ouputted the version just fine with no errors. BUT when I login as a user, 'java -version' gives me that: "Error occurred during initialization of VM. java/lang/NoClassDefFoundError: java/lang/Object". I guess it is not an perm error (although it looks like one). They seem ok.

Get the jre bin one and execute it by opening up a terminal window in the folder where you downloaded it and typing ./put the name of the file behind this. Do it in user mode. If it says you don't have permission, type chmod a+x before the filename and then execute it. It will install the plugin for you I believe. Or you can copy it from the java folder to your plugin folder.
