Is there a problem with your repositories list, maybe? Eg do the exact names in your repo list file match live repositories? Are the repo sites up?

I just barely understand what you mean.. but here:

openSUSE-10.3-Updates

Main Repository (NON-OSS)

openSUSE-10.3-OSS-Gnome 10.3

Main Repository (OSS)


All these were in a place called "Configured Software Repositories - YaST".

Ok, .exe files will not run in Linux unless you install them with wine, yast will not open exe files. In linux there is a concept called a package manager which downloads and installs software for you, thats what yast does. In addition, there are package files, which are usually .deb or .rpm(there are exceptions like slackware which uses .tgz). Just use YaST to download and install programs for you

I would have thought simply double clicking on the wine rpm file would launch your package manager, you can then proceed with the install from there. If you know how to switch to root in a terminal, do so and type (or copy and paste this command):
Code:
rpm -ivh wine-1.0-3.2.i586.rpm
then press enter.

If you have downloaded and saved the wine rpm to your desktop, cut it then paste it into your home folder then do the above command again. If your version of wine is not the same as 1.0-3.2, change the number(s) accordingly when you type the command.

Can you see the wine rpm file that you downloaded? If yes, where is it?

The only place I can see it is in the little "Downloads" window that popped up. It no longer has a loading bar and says 'Done' directly beneath 'wine-1.0-3.2.i586.rpm'. On the right side it says 'Remove' directly beneath 'Open'. When I open it I get some weird archive manager that I have no idea what to do with.

Try `install --help' for more information.

Ok, that sounds like the Firefox download manager...

AT THE COMMAND LINE - type this:

Code:
 
$yum install wine
If you can't do that, you don't need to be trying to use windows apps on Linux.

I already told you it doesn't work. And what, is "THE COMMAND LINE" and a terminal different? Or are you just not comprehending that it's not working?

Did you download with firefox? If so, hit the tools menu, then options, and on the main tab, it will tell you where downloads are going (something like Downloads - save files to)
