DataLoader: Increase Timeout Value?

Dataloader times out occasionally when connecting to Salesforce. I am using the .jar file directly from a UNIX command line.

Is there a parameter I can feed it to increase the timeout value from 5000 ms? Here is the error I get every so often connecting to Salesforce:

2005-11-29 10:58:28,924 INFO [main] controller.LoaderController initConfig ( - The log has been initialized

2005-11-29 10:58:39,866 ERROR [main] LoaderEngineRunner main ( - ; nested exception is:



Can't help with the timeout issue but am looking to install the dataloader on a Unix box, can you give

any guidance about installation and configuration?




There's a bunch of info about that on the sforce blog
