Finally, success on Hadoop

After days of fighting with the system (due to lack of even basic Linux knowledge), I finally managed to configure Hadoop on a single node and ran the Word Count example which ships along with the software itself. It felt good to see a working example. The results were good.
I hope that this acts as a stepping stone for my further work on hadoop and in my overall research attempt. Must thank Michael Noll for his tutorial at http://www.michael-noll.com/tutorials/running-hadoop-on-ubuntu-linux-single-node-cluster/ for the help.
My next step is going to be setting up a multi-node cluster.
