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.

you should look into what those commands are doing. ln creates links between files. since no-one knows how to install uncompress on redhat we are subsituting it with gunzip (it probably handles the same format that compress uses).
at this point download the file again (do not use ftp and do not attempt to modify or edit the file in any way) then run ./DBConfig_RHEL_SAM_10_0_R5.bin to execute it and post the command and any error or output in you next response.
if you must use ftp then be certainly sure that you enable binary mode when you transfer it. ask the author of the file if they have any sha1 or md5 checksum that you can use to verify the integrity of the downloaded file.
