Xnview will open art files.

Changing extensions doesn't do a thing...it's still in the art format regardless of the filename.

look at the little images on the lower left of the main image. those are flags, they are links to the same page in different languages. just a friendly tip, take a few minutes and look at any page you've been linked to before you post.

?

mv <path/to/file/in/nt> </new/spot/in/linux>

Will only work with FAT (by default)


Cheers,

To transfer files between systems, there are all sorts of options: copy to a floppy, or copy to a pen drive, or copy to CD, or Email the file to yourself under XP and then reboot under Linux to retrieve it. Personally I just got one of those pen drives and they are super handy. -- J.W.

An exe is no good to you on linux. Linux does not run windows programs (well, there's a program called WINE that will, but that's not really the point). Anyway, you probably don't have the floppy disk mounted. Type:
Code:
mount /mnt/floppy
and the change into the directory /mnt/floppy and your files will be there.

i know you have to mount the floppy but thanks
but i don't know where do you type code: mount /mnt /floppy stuff at
the way i do it is i right click and the menu comes up and i go down to disk and choose floppy and it is mounted but i don't know how to do it the other way
also when i open pictures in a floppy they have rocket icons and they wont open in any of the graphic viewers like the gimp or the paint or magic something
