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.

What can you make from this error report form LimeWire? it worked fine before. i even went to the java site again and downloaded and installed the RPM file for the runtime enviroment.
I don't know what it is about the Firefox Java plugin, but that thing is a nightmare. I use Firefox on my Windows machine at work and I installed that plugin and the same thing happened to me. NONE of my other Java programs would work. The only way I found around it was to remove ALL Java installations and unistall Firefox and then re-install them. Of course this was on a Win2K machine.
On your Linux box, I would check your PATH and see if it points to something odd . If it does, I'd remove that directory and point to a decent Java installation from Sun or Blackdown. I'd also check your Firefox plugin directory and create a new link to a decent Java.

i suggest you get the rpm or the bin file from java.sun.com or install blackdown or ibm jdk manually. After installing it you do a symbolic link of javaplugin to firefox plugin dir
