exe files are windows applications and will not natively run on linux. WINE is an API that will run some windows applications but it is far from perfect. That said there are many FTP clients that are available in linux.

I've never messed with linspire but it does have a package manager called CNR which you can download many applications and it should automatically configure everything.

Depending on where you live there could be a linux users group where you could get some one on one help.

Good Luck

Same but different

Freespire is originally derived from Linspire. Freespire 1.0 is based on Debian, while Freespire 2.0 is based on Ubuntu. Linspire was bought by Xandros, who decided to switch back to Debian for future Freespire releases
