a few simple questions


I am really new to linux. A few simple answers please. If I want to save a document from a word processing document as a .doc file on a dos disc, how do I go about doing it. I have mounted the disc, but it does not appear on the targets in the save as options. Thanks

it depends on what program you're using. not all linux text editors will have that option.
for the dos disk, you need to have a disk already formatted in FAT16/32 under windows or dos, and just copy to that. linux should recognize it and just write to it normally.

If you have OpenOffice available/installed that translates .doc files nicely. I am pretty sure you have to be in X to use it.
