I've never seen Downloads in the root directory, as /Downloads. Just entering cd<enter> takes you to your home directory. Then cd Downloads (not cd /Downloads) should take you to your download directory, but not necessarily. Find may or may not be installed on the system, but it won't hurt to try using it. You can also try
Code:
locate rosetta
I don't know the actual name of the .iso file, but use part of the actual filename.

thanks to all of you, i really appreciate your help.

I took a break to start again with this.. I get anxious easy with computers staff. :S

this is what i've done:

myusername@myusername:~$ cd ~/
myusername@myusername:~$ find -name '*.iso'
./Downloads/Rosetta Stone - French - Level 1, 2, 3, 4, 5/French - Level 4.iso
./Downloads/Rosetta Stone - French - Level 1, 2, 3, 4, 5/French - Level 3.iso
./Downloads/Rosetta Stone - French - Level 1, 2, 3, 4, 5/French - Level 2.iso
./Downloads/Rosetta Stone - French - Level 1, 2, 3, 4, 5/French - Level 1.iso
./Downloads/Rosetta Stone - French - Level 1, 2, 3, 4, 5/French - Level 5.iso
myusername@myusername:~$ tar -jxvf./Downloads/Rosetta Stone - French - Level 1, 2, 3, 4, 5/French - Level 1.iso
tar (child): ./Downloads/Rosetta: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2

well all those blank spaces in the name WILL CAUSE PROBLEMS !!!

linux and apples Mac DO NOT !!! like "blank spaces" in names

blank spaces are for different commands
they are used to separate commands
for the file " Rosetta Stone - French - Level 1, 2, 3, 4, 5/French - Level 1.iso"
you need to put double quotes around it

also a ISO image is NOT !!!!!!!!! a "tar" archive ( think of like a zip file on windows )
you have TO MOUNT IT !!!! using a " loop " if it is not on a DVD or CD
it is a image that goes ON A dvd or cd

basically save your self a LOT of problems
ind burn the ISO's to a cd ( burn as an image ) and use a windows OS

or at least use the physical CD's in wine

I don't have a windows OS in my computer, and don't have any computer else.. so I will burn the ISO's to a cd and then see how it goes in wine.

Thanks for your advise.

As I told before I am new in Debian. So much to learn.
