If you post the name of the file you downloaded it's much easier to help you!

I've installed America's Army 2.10 for Linux. Here's how to install:

As root, cd into the directory containing the file armyops210-linux.bin

1. Run the installation program "./armyops210-linux.bin"

if you get the message permission denied, you need to give execute permission to the file:
"chmod +x armyops*.bin"

2. Follow the setup instructions. (I suggest you install the game in /opt/armyops)

3. After the install, goto whereever you installed the game and run armyops "./armyops"

To play online, you need to update punk buster (the version of punk buster that comes with the game is outdated - you'll be kicked from most games if you don't update). Download pbweb.x86 to <army opsdir>/System/pb and run it

bobwall already told you. Just type those commands in the console one by one.

Try ctrl+alt+del You can also restart your x server by pressing ctrl+alt+backspace.

I installed it on Mandrake 10.0. It aborted on an error the first time, saying it could not create a directory that existed. I deleted the directory, and ran the installer again successfully.
