As a new comer to linux i have just installed a duel boot onto my system along with windows Xp.
As a new comer i have managed to find my around quite well getting the internet and email to work,
1.but when it came to installing software, i am stuck, i have downloaded a couple of limux programs, namely the java editor eclipse and hugs, i am stuck as to how to install eclipse, i have tried extractign the zip files but am unable to get the program to run.
2. When i tried to install hugs , i clicked on the rpm file and went through the installing procedure, but i dont know how to run the application. When i now click on the rpm file it tell me that the package is installed.
Any help would be great , i have looked on the internet for installation and linux for dummies but no help was found
any help would be most grateful
