The tar.gz archive of firefox just needs to be extracted (no specific installation)...go into the extracted directory and run the binary firefox inside the directory using :
CODE
./firefox


You may refer to this article for more details.

I would suggest..give a try to Ubuntu or OpenSuSE 10.1 or Knoppix Live DVD...in case the live dvd works u can always install it onto your harddisk smile.gif

During installation of suse..when u choose the "installation" option, you may check out the log files by using the root console : ctrl + alt + F2. And then doing a cat on the /tmp/Yast2/ :
CODE
cat /tmp/Yast2/<filename>

Linux has 3 set of permissions : [user][group][others]
You can assign read/write/execute permissions to each set.
The [user] , [group] can be assigned for one user or one group at a time.

QUOTE
at the current moment i got full permisison to group A, but anyone from group B or any other user can't access it......

Thats coz group B comes under others and u haven't given read permission to others i guess.

Hope this helps

In grub menu while booting these are the commands

e- edit commands before booting,
c- command line,
a- modify the kernel arguments before booting.

Select 'e'.....Then there would be one more menu with something like this..

root (hd0,0) #line 1
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-6 ro root=LABEL=/ #line 2 (may be something different in your system)

Now in line 2 , append a 3 and then boot...This should boot the system into a terminal..
You can get the info from official fedora faq also..
If something weird happens then use the reset button to restart the system.

After you get a terminal...try with startx..
Tell us if you get any specific error..

First of all, Open up a terminal and then type in
CODE
konqueror&

In konqueror go into the "Storage Media" and see if your harddisk is already mounted (there should be a harddisk icon..just check its contents). If its mounted then type in the terminal :
CODE
k3b

You can use k3b to write the files onto a DVD smile.gif Just see the K3B handbook (press F1) for details on how to write a Data DVD..

Try booting from the other harddisk again..and give us the exact error details (which file is missing or which directory is not present)
QUOTE
BUT* i cannot type anything after password??? after 3 seconds (always 3 seconds) it suddenly returns to me
incorrect login

For security reasons linux doesn't echo a password character for the password you type. Just type it and press Return. If your password is correct you should get a command prompt. Then you may try to start the X using :
CODE
startx

USB Devices
1 - Disconnect the device, and reboot your system (or turn it on)
2 - Open a terminal, and type "su -" (no quotes) to gain temporary root privileges
3 - Run the following command "tail -f /var/log/messages" (again, no quotes)
4 - Plug the USB device into your computer
5 - Provide any output on the terminal as part of your post
5 - Run "lsmod" and "lsusb" and provide the output in your post

Open up a terminal and login as superuser :
CODE
su -

You need to find out the device file for the ntfs partition. Try with
CODE
fdisk -l

Next mount the device to a directory using
CODE
mkdir /media/win                                    #create the destination directory
mount /dev/hdaX /media/win/ -t ntfs -o nls=utf8,umask=0222  #replace hdaX with your device file

Now you can read the files in ntfs drive from the /media/win directory

How about setting up a proxy server in the Windows XP system using a software like : ccproxy..ccproxy is not a free software but the trial version is fine if the number of clients connected to server is less than 3.

In your home directory there should be a directory public_html
Just keep the files index.php and any other html files there..
The index.php in your_home_directory/public_html/ can be accessed using
CODE
http://localhost/~username/index.php

for playing DVDs you need to install libdvdcss rpm..here is the link
Then kaffeine should be able to play dvds once the above rpm is installed..
If you want to play mp3's in amarok you have to install amarok-xine package..realplayer should be able to play mp3's without any other library..
