Unhappy Installing .bin Files in Redhat Linux 9.0


Hey I am currently running Redhat Linux 9.0. It is now like my 2nd week into Linux and my Windows 98 parition is having trouble. I would like to install Americas Army .bin on my computer but I dont know how.

By the way, If I reformat my harddrive to try to fix Windows 98, will it mess up my Linux partition?


Thanks,
BadKarma

No it shouldn't affect your linux partition, but if the boot loader is on that partition then you will need to install a new one. But the boot loader probably is on its own partition. So I wouldn't worry about it.



Don't nkow about the .bin files.

You usually run them ....
Code:
./<your-bin-filename><CR>

Hard-drive or windows-partition? :)
