Linuxhelp _ Programming in Linux _ Can I Get Ares To Work In Linux

Posted by: peacemaker1182 Nov 14 2004, 01:57 AM

Hi. a friend told me that i should learn to use linux instead of winxp. So i did and now that i have linux i am very confused. Every time i download a file it gives it to me in archived files that are code and i do not know how to get them to run. I am mainly concerned with getting ares or some other file sharing program on my system, however the install process has stalled because all i get are archived files that only have code. I am wanting to stay with linux but if i can't figure out how to work with this coding then i dont know if i will be able to... I am very confused and if someone would pleassseee help me i would appreciate it... thanx in advance. oh also i need a video media player if anyone knows where i can get one for linux.
I am using RedHat 9.0
I have an amd 3000 processor and a gig of ram.
