Question Quick Question

After installing a program, such as gcc, or perl, (my recent installs) do I need to keep the folder and install files that I downloaded, or can I throw them out?

You can saftly delete them, but I save them until I get a CD's worth and then burn them to a CD so I don't have to find them or download them again.

just a tip.. good luck
