Hi, last question for the night...and just in case the other questions don't scream "Absolute Newbie"...
I was trying to install Adobe Acrobat off one of the disks appearing with the Caldera OpenLinux 2.3 for stupidheads kit, and this is what I tried...
[terminal window, from user as su-root, and also from root kde logins]:
message:no such file or directory
the first time I was able to proceed a little further, the second time I got the no such thing message:
at this point, I got a no such directory message [next time I'll write it down...because OpenLinux doesn't recognise my printer either...or my soundcard...or really my video card, but at least I can fake that].
I understand that I have to 'mount' things, rather than just doubleclick an icon and let Windows do the work, but I don't quite follow what the mount process is [found Java NetBeans mystifying for same reason].
yeah, and I see the tar - zip analogy, but don't yet follow that either.
Thing is, I was successful in unpacking and running StarOffice on this distro...need another brain to see what I'm overlooking in this case.
