Since I'm a newbie, there has to be a differnet way of going about this.
I burnt a CD here at work with alot of .tar.gz files, cause im on dial up at home. Now when i enter gnome i get to term and i type
of course I have to do this with root (until i figure out how to use sudo :P )
now when i browse the CD copy files to a dir in my /home
cp filename.tar.gz /home/MikeeX/downloads
now when going to my home dir logged on as myself, I don't have permission to extract these .tar.gz files, and I think its because I cp them as root .. im not really sure .. can anyone give me any tips or ideas on how to do this so I don't have to switch around users so much to just extract a darn file
