I know what the different between GUI and and CLI interface, I want a CLI as a window rather than full screen. You mentioned it's the same as windows but called something else. Where is it? What is the keyboard shortcut to it, could I assign the windows key to a terminal? I am going to use Gnome as that is what it is coming with but may try KDE later.

Answers depend on distro ...

... but you seem interested in Fedora. Sorry, Iīm not using Fedora myself and I prefer KDE, so I have no idea what the shortcut is neither how you do it under Gnome. But that shouldnīt be too difficult to find out, under KDE you do it in KControl, so there must be something similar in Gnome. Have you ever tried a live-CD by the way? Ubuntu has Gnome. Itīs a good idea to experiment with the live-CD first.

Somewhere in the menu. Just search, you will find.

If you need IE only for ftp simplicity I guess any browser in Linux world have this simplicity and more regardless of pointing out ftp clients.
Nevertheless I found the IE4sLinux link. here it is
http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/page/Main_Page
I am very against to IE because it is misleading the way Internet grows.
Because it is not standarts-compliant. It has its own standarts and is reluctant to change them. It has many bugs, very poor security etc.

I'll see if Opera has the drag and drop interface, it doesn't bother me too much, it's just with Firefox I can only view files in the ftp directory but with IE delete and add also. Is there a Opera plug-in for Linux Firefox, just for simplicity?

I'm not totally sure what you mean by "Is there a {one browser} plugin for {different browser}".

IE's ftp features come from the fact that IE is tied in so closely with Windows Explorer. Other web browsers that are closely tied with a file manager (such as Konqueror) also have the same ftp features.

I mean is there a plug-in so that I can use Opera from within Firefox, there is one for the Windows version, haven't found any for Linux.

I've never heard if this under either Windows or Linux. If there is one I'd guess it's a Firefox extension, in which case it should work under any OS Firefox runs on.

Why do you eant to use one browser from withing another? I can't think of any possible reason!

EDIT: I've just doen a serarch for "Opera" on the Mozilla plugin site, and the only extension I found that is anything like you described is "OperaView", which claims to work on all systems. I don't know what plugin you've found that is Windows only.

It looks like OperaView should do what you want.

Don't worry about it, it is probably the same plug-in, I didn't take a hard look at it. But I want it for simplicity. At the moment I have Firefox with a IE tab so if a web page doesn't load I just click the button so that it loads with IE within firefox.. hardly noticeable.. Nevermind about it though.
