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.

Is there a default start-up tune that plays every time you boot Linux up?. For example, when I boot Windows XP I get the old "systemstart" tune. If there is'nt a default one, is there a way to add my own?
Don't know about Gnome I don't use it, But from the KDE control center, click sound & multimedia in the left pane and select System notifications. In the right pane from the drop down menu select KDE system notifications and in the menu below that you will see........KDE is Exiting and KDE is starting up. Highlight either or and put a check in the box next to "play a sound" If you have your own sounds in your home directory like I do......

Java is proprietary software. Someone would have to pay for it, like in Windoze (or steal it), for it to be "built-in" to a Linux distro. It is easily installed, and a Google or LQ search should give you the tools to get it done.
