*What* ".exe files"?

*What* "multimedia files"?

*What kind* of "webcam"?

Q: Have you tried logging in, and browsing around your Fedora desktop yet? Most of what you're asking should actually "just work".

These resources might help:

<= You'll note the sections on Multimedia, too!

1. EXE files are for Windows...this is Linux, and they won't work. Some programs CAN work under Wine, under Linux, though.
2. You play them through the media players in Linux.
3. You make sure the drivers are loaded, and run an application that uses your webcam.

Your question has no real information or details in it. You don't say what programs (.EXE) files you're trying to run, what kind of multimedia files, or anything about your hardware. How can anyone give you any help???
