Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Thanks a lot for your patience and help here how my terminal looks and the path of the Dir. & files the only changes I saw is that the color of the file setup .sfx changes from white to green after executing teh command but I didn't how to do after that I couldn't go ant further.
jasem@ubuntu:~$ sudo su
root@ubuntu:/home/jasem# cd Desktop
root@ubuntu:/home/jasem/Desktop# cd Acronis
CORE.NFO fixdown.com.txt fixdown.nfo keygen.exe setup.sfx
Well, since you've made the setup.sfx file executable now, you need to execute it.
Before I go on though, I see there's a file called keygen.exe in the folder Acronis. From this, I assume this is not an entirely legal copy of this software you've got, and if that is the case, there's not really much more help I can offer as LQ doesn't promote the use of cracked software.
edit: Furthermore, executing code from a not entirely trustworthy source is a sure fire way of getting yourself a rootkit installed, which is a generally nasty experience and a fairly major security headache.
The reasons I speculated this wasn't a legit copy of the program are:
1. keygen.exe as far as I am aware is short for key generator, which is generally used to provide software registration keys.
2. CORE.NFO is a file commonly found in pirated software torrents.
3. If Acronis is the name of the software, then it is a commercial piece of backup software, of which there appears to be no free version: http://www.acronis.com/enterprise/products/ATISLin/
As I said, I assumed that was the case - I wasn't stating it for a fact, and the OP is more than welcome to clarify.
edit: I am mistaken, there is a free evalution copy of Acronis for Linux, but I'd be surprised if it came with keygen.exe and CORE.NFO, so I'm still a bit sceptical.
