Opening .exe files


Using SuSe 9.1 KDE 3.2

I have hardware that requires a driver to work. The driver is in .exe format. How can I open an .exe extension?

Thanks

Even if you could open the .exe file it would install Windows drivers on your fake C drive, so they would be of absolutely no use to you.

I found the driver for Linux.

For a Jaz 2g Internal drive.

The drive is being recongized but I can't write to it?

Thanks

An internal Jaz drive? It is either SCSI or ATAPI (IDE). Just treat it like a normal hard drive - you do not need any of Iomega's crap software to mount the discs.
