sarcastic? it sounds to me like people here are trying to help.... and its true that as a sysadmin you should know a thing or two about researching the actual chipset instead of a branded name...

Im rather new to linux, but I do know that not all "programs" run off a single dos-like executable like windows...

good luck nonetheless...

tried ./mozilla-installer , still the same response. sorry if i seemed rude earlier its been a tough nigh and i have spent 3 hours trying to find a simple command.
dslboy, i disagree, even though windows is filled with bad software and crap, under the same resolution, explorer in me is faster than konquerer in x. Maybe its different for some programs but the reason I chose to learn linux is that graphics cripple programs and I want maximum speed.
Anyway, will try in text mode rather than consol tommorow.

check /usr/local/bin

and if you find it, just type the name should do the trick,
also check the hidden dirs in your user's home catalog...
That's the advice i can give you...

lynx is a good choice for browsing webpages in textmode.

on your mozilla installer problem:

maybe you need to be root:
in terminal: type 'su', hit enter, give password. (type 'exit' to leave root-session)

if ./mozilla-installer doesn't work, try
chmod u+x mozilla-installer
which makes a file executable for the user owning it.

if you are not owner of a file,(find it out with 'ls -l')
type:
chown user file
You need to be root for doing so.

I guess you are sure you are in the right directory. If not try
find / -name mozilla-installer
where / is root directory, give specific directory to save some time.
e.g. if you are sure it is somwhere in your home directory, use:
find ~ -name mozilla-installer

Ive tried run, man, command, the name of the file, evrything.
in this listing ./mozilla-installer does not appear. Are you sure you tried this between all the mud and the blood and the beer?
