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 re-installed Slack 10.2 on an old lappy. I had an offline web page spider on there called Sunrise (it makes pdb files which plucker on your pda can read). It's free at sourceforge. The program needs java 1.5 or greater to work. Slack 10.2 has jre-1.5.04 installed. I get this error from CLI now (it worked before a re-install):
sunrise-desktop.sh: line 1: java: command not found
There isn't much to read with sunrise-it was developed for Win and now they put it out temporarily to the Linux world as a teaser to get people interested in free offline pda reading with their software before they charge money. I don't get anything in my terminal when I type:
Distribution: Slackware, Slackware ARM, Salix and Porteus
I use a java based program, Moneydance, for personal finance management. I just create a sym link to the required java. I'm at work but I think it would have been something like "ln -s /usr/lib/jre jre". Might have the jre wrong though, might be something else.
