I am new to linux and have installed mandrake 9.0 and everytime i do something it becomes very confusing, there are so many words that i know nothing about, i downloaded a driver for tv-out and it says you dont have to configure the kernal, so what do you do? the download just sits there taking up room, i downloaded another program and there is nothing to tell me how to install it, i feel i am better then the average windows user but when it comes to linux i cant seem to get anywhere, i am starting to think you need to be an advanced user to get anywhere. Help is hard to understand cause they use words that i know nothing about......is windows better for the average user that likes to download various things from time to time and just play around?

Hi there. Just like you I'm new to lynux when I used it. Anyways what I have notice when I used it was that typical files that you use on Windows generally won't work on Lynux. Such a file is .exe they will not work, at least when I used lynux 7.2. Anyhow if the file that you have is an .exe it probably won't work beyond that I really don't know you weren't really specific. Hopes this helps. biggrin.gif
