Re qn1, if you did it from the cmd line you can post the error msg, which would help us a lot.
What format is that volume?
Post the results of

fdisk -l

as root from the cmd line

Double posting would have been fine, given that the questions are unrelated.

The skype 'deb' file you have is not an archive, so archive manager is not able to do anything. If you can't just double click on it to install, then you can run 'dpkg -i package-name.deb' from a root terminal.

People , thx for the fdisk -l thing, i really fix the problem with the hard disk but with the program installation:

juanchy:/home/criacuervo/programs# ls
frostwire-4.18.1.i586.deb xmms_1.2.10+20061101-1etch1_i386.deb
skype-debian_2.0.0.72-1_i386.deb
juanchy:/home/criacuervo/programs# dpkg -i frostwire-4.18.1.i586.deb
(Reading database ... 94094 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace frostwire 4.18.0 (using frostwire-4.18.1.i586.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement frostwire ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of frostwire:
frostwire depends on sun-java6-bin; however:
Package sun-java6-bin is not installed.
dpkg: error processing frostwire (--install):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
frostwire
juanchy:/home/criacuervo/programs#

i think is something of dependecies, so try with sun-java6-bin


juanchy:/home/criacuervo/programs# apt-get install sun-java6-bin
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package sun-java6-bin is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package sun-java6-bin has no installation candidate
juanchy:/home/criacuervo/programs#

what can you do to get all the dependencies in orden not to need to download them?

By preference you should use apt rather than directly downloading deb files, because apt-get will take care of the dependencies and do the install for you (whereas dpkg is just the individual package installer).

To get Sun java through apt-get, you will need to add 'non-free' to the lenny repositories in '/etc/apt/sources.list'.

Code:
deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ lenny main non-free
deb-src http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ lenny main non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main non-free
Then run 'apt-get update' before you do the 'apt-get'.

As schneidz pointed out, this will then enable you to also get skype the easy way.

I did the non-free thing and this happened and the apt-get update thing and this happened:

juanchy:/home/criacuervo# apt-get install frostwire
Reading package lists... Done

Reading state information... Done
frostwire is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
1 not fully installed or removed.
After this operation, 0B of additional disk space will be used.
Setting up frostwire (4.18.0) ...

OOPS, you don't seem to have a valid JRE. FrostWire works best with Sun JRE available at http://www.java.com

Errors were encountered while processing:
frostwire
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
juanchy:/home/criacuervo#

and i tried to install from the java page installing the .bin file
but it does no work either. and i actually installed the jre v6 thing but when i try to run or install frostwire is the same error.

If you run 'update-alternatives --config java', one of the alternatives should be '/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/bin/java'. If you don't have it, then your installation of Sun's version of java has failed. If it is not set as the default, select it.

If it is already installed and set to default, then the problem lies with frostwire's use of the java engine. Are you running a 64-bit version of Debian?

[edit: you figured it out already!]
