I just installed Red Hat Linux 8.0 on my system which also has windows xp.I've downloaded some linux apps and I dont understand how to open tar.gz files. I am able to open i386-rpm files.Since I am an imbecile when it comes to linux, can anyone tell me what rpm stands for.Also I am unable to play mp3 files using the audio player,kaboodle, or noatun.

NO! RPM stands for Redhat Package Manager, so it isn't one of those delicious recursive acronyms.

Windows:

A 32-bit API
on a 16-bit GUI
on a 8-bit shell
on a 4-bit OS
made by a 2-bit company
that won't survive 1 bit of competition.

Go to http://www.rpm.org and read the first paragraph.

www.rpm.org
The RPM Package Manager (RPM) is a powerful command line driven package management system capable of installing, uninstalling, verifying, querying, and updating computer software packages. Each software package consists of an archive of files along with information about the package like its version, a description, and the like. There is also a related API ("Application Program Interface"), permitting advanced developers to bypass 'shelling out' to a command line, and to manage such transactions from within a native coding language.
