Kind regards

The only authentication you will need is your root (or sudoers) password, depending on your distro. (It will be the only password you created during installation of a single-user desktop system). If you are trying to install software for Windows, that will not run natively on Linux. You'll need to install it with Wine or some other compatibility layer/emulator package.
