Jeez, that file naming thing is sloppy! I'd complain to whoever produced the CD if I were you.

In the first screenshot at post #14 the path is a windows path, with "\" between directories not the linux "/"

Unix was on the scene before M$ and they chose a different path-separator character for "their own reasons". That is why you have run into this (stupid) problem.

Maybe throw out the CD and try here
