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.

Make sure you are in the correct directory - eg same as where the bin file is - when you issue the chmod command. I think thats why its saying it doesnt exist because I think you are in the wrong directory.
Did you download the file to your desktop or /home folder?
You need to add an entry to you /boot/grub/menu.lst file which says acpi=off
If, as root, you type:
you will see that under the fail safe boot options this is already there. You need to include it under the normal boot options. To do this, you will need to use a text editor as the cat command will just show you the file, not edit it.
To do this:
Use the cursor keys to navigate and when you have included it, <control> 'O' to save (thats a letter, not number> and then <control> 'x' to quit.
Alternatively, if you fire up Yast>system>system services there is an option to turn 'acpid' to 'off'. I am not 100% sure whether this is the same thing but logically, it would seem so.
I added acpi=off to the Linux xxx part. I left floppy alone and failsafe alone. Works great! One question though, when suse 10 boots up, NORMALLY I don't see all the info. I mean log. I used to see the Suse screen with the Icons loading. I don't see that anymore...:-(. Wonder why. It "Acts" just like its loading in safe mode, but its not in safe mode.
Maybe your edit (especially when done with pico) has introduced a line-break, which causes all parameters in the next line not to be read properly. Check that all parameters are in one line and the next line starts with 'initrd'.
The parameter that controls the bootscreen is splash=silent/verbose/off ('silent' doesn't show any messages, 'verbose' shows messages on a graphical background and 'off' shows plain text messages).
