Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

you need to have unzip installed - I am not sure if that gets installed by default with debian.If you got a password protected file karchiver will not work.
Atool is nice for unpacking.On installation it checks what you got on your system (unzip,unrar,tar ...) and then handles everything.All you do is type aupack /filename
When things already start breaking you can try to install KDE3.1beta - that should be the final blow :-0
Seriously - if you can't get that install problem fixed it's probably best to start a new thread about it and post whatever errormsg you get if any.
sure thing, im mainly gonna have my neighbor help me. ive got debian all installed. i installed Xfree86 and other apps ecept KDE or Gnome, theres some window mangers on like the basic TVM. however my neighbor configures X for me, i have no idea what he does but im glad he does it! lol thanks for your help guys.
nonethless, back to the point, archiver should open zip files but it needs some kind of extension of some sorts to open zips. whres the ark homepage etc?
