Neverwinter Nights installation problems

First, when I view this forum, I only see 9 of 9 entries, none of which are related to NWN. When I click to find similar threads, I get 5 NWN entries which the links at the top appear to indicate they are here. Where are they?

I'm trying to install NWN using files from and not having any luck. When I execute
$ ./
I get an 'unpacking' message but I see no change in the directory.
When I run
$ ./
I get an error message that loki_patch cannot be found.

The other posts show installation is possible. What am I missing?

with a .run, there's usually a script and binaries in one. You can try

./ --explode (or /explode) and see if you get the thing in a dir, and then you can poke around.
