Hi ucmanish,

There are several ways to achieve this.

To do so, you have to mount your Windows partition (if you installed Windows before Linux, that should be done by now in most distros).

Then, you have to browse to that directory (something like /mnt/win_c/directory), and double click on the rpm file.

Another way is to configure that particular directory with your Software Media Manager (in KDE is in System/Configuration/Packaging), so when you want to run an install, it will check that location.

the simplest and effecient way

get then into a directory in linux say i have a directory /plugins for all these

so when i go there

cd /plugins
rpm -ivh abc.rpm
here arguments i,v,h are for different purposes
