Apologies to all you who have probably answered these questions before, but I am pulling my hair out trying to install plugins. I have tried several different ways but always seem to hit a brick wall somewhere along the line. Can anyone point me to a page where simple commands and tasks are explained in an 'idiot proof' manner. This is my first time using linux and while I can see that it is a very good system, it is clear that I need a nudge in the right direction when it comes to administration and terminal use. Sorry for being a bit vague but if anyone can help on any topic, I will gladly give more details.
Thanks.

don't quite know what that means but here goes
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008060309 Firefox/3.0
Ubuntu 8.04 (hardy)
Kernel Linux 2.6.24-18-generic
GNOME 2.22.2
AMD Athlon™64X2 DCP 4000+
Does that make sense to you ?
Thanks

Ubuntu is the linux distribution (distro). BTW if you want to get an idea on the number of distributions check out www.distrowatch.com.

I assume your trying to installl plugins for Mozilla. It would help to know which one. More information provided is better then none.

This might help.
