Help with Linux =[

  Re-staw 18:59 25 Dec 2008

Hi, first of all merry Xmas =]

second of all, got a netbook today and am very pleased with it but i am completely new to the Linux operating system and so i was wondering a few things.

Why cant i install anything, i keep getting errors whenever i try to install any file, such as aMSN and other popular Linux programs.

I get "The patch file does not available" and sometimes after a download il open and it will go into Xarchiver and when i try to extract i get another error, it seems i cant install anything!

Please help, also what is this terminal jargon i keep hearing, lines of code that have to entered??
