Question I need help..

I'm not entirely sure that this subject is relevant.
I recently bought Linux hosting, and I need to know how to install EXE files on the server and how to have them running permanently.
Quick replies would be appreciated as I have a deadline to meet.

linux wont run .exe's without the proper API (ie WINE)...and its probably not a good idea to run a server on WINE.

Lol sorry I wasn't very clear at the time.
I got hosting from GoDaddy. It says pick either Linux or Windows.
I picked Linux. I have MySQL databases and stuff now.
I need to run an NT service.
Is it possible? And if so, how?

what service do you need to run??

Is it simple webhosting? can't imagine they'll let you go off installing services on their system.
