Install Question


Ok I downloaded Americas Army, and burned the ISO using K3B. Now what do I do?
I am totally new and confused by Linux, so if you could simplify your response I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks a Bunch TIM

now you will mount it:
mount /mnt/cdrom
cd into the CD:
cd /mnt/cdrom
List the files on the CD:
ls
view any Readme or Install files
emacs name of file
and follow the directions in the file

Are there any files when you ls /mnt/cdrom?
If not could you post your /ect/fstab file?
