Unhappy ok Newbie here with RH linux 9 few problems need help

i bought RH linux 9 last week and installed it all but now running into a few problems.

.exe files are Windows executable files. They will only run in Linux with something like Wine. And even then, not all programs will work. What are you trying to install, there may be a Linux alternative.

To share files, you will need to install Samba - sorry can't help with installation as I have never used it. Search this forum, many others have had problems answered.

The broadband connection should work - assuming you have enabled DHCP and it is supported by your ISP. What happens when you try to connect? What have you done already?
