The best way to isntall Linux is to download the ISOs (from somewhere like here ) and then boot off the CD. Dealing with a command line implies that you are installing off a floppy, which is pretty impractical for any modern distro -- J.W.

Do you mean installing programs or installing linux? What type of files are you using?? rpm, tar.gz, tar.bz2, deb, tgz ??? we need more information. Most programs have a readme somewhere or a howto/FAQ on the website.

edit: of course it will be a pain if you are using the shell :-P
