a better place to start is to know what linux distro you are running. everyone ive used has had a grafical package manager where you can scroll a list and when u click on them it gives u a discription of what it is.

You will need to be more specific. Are you trying to install something?What is it?What steps have you done?What are the error messages?The more information the better.

I'm afraid that- though we do really want to help you, you are just going to have to read the documentation. This includes the wiki, google is useful, read the man pages, etc. If you have a specific question, post it, and be specific. and, dropping your vowels (smthing, plz, etc) is annoying, and many memebers will ignore you for it. This is what is called kiddie speak.

Welcome to LQ all the same!

I'm new to linux myself and that kiddy speak anonnys me too with a couple of Win fourms that I use. To answer your question about linux file system (but no guarantees on accuracy but) is thats it's 100% different to windows. Where in windows you have A: C: ect. linux has no set drives but rather has everything in the same drive the root. So think of windows files as been on many small trees and in linux you just have one very large tree. Please correct me if I have lead him a stray..

that sounds right and i agree totally that win file systemand linux are nowhere near the same. my experiance is that linux file system is really hard to learn if u try to compare it to windows file system.
