I'm a Linux newbie (converted Windoze user) and have recently installed Red Hat 9.0, I've been very surprised at the ease of which I'm finding Linux and have managed to grasp mounting filesystems, command lines, permissions etc.
However I seem to have hit the wall with Package installation, Red Hat's seemed easy but when I download one from the net and attempt to install, I'm not sure where it has installed it, whether it has installed and how to run it when installed. I tried Synaptic and APT but had file dependency problems, does anyone know where I can find an "Idiot's Guide" to Linux Package Installation or some straightforward tutorials?
Just from looking thru this forum I can see that I'm not the first to have had this problem!
Tom (all help much appreciated!)
