Dear JJJ


Hard to believe you are trying your first Linux OS! Can't help you here... just backup one of your machines and go for it... I have never used Ubuntu but one of my friends swears by it. His XP serves as a platform only and Ubuntu uses the DOS functions in it to execute commands.

hi mell

i have been playing with it for 7 hours now and just sort of getting the idea..

and its very pretty and runs very smooth.its a pure Linux system..


i have a lot to understand..

i just am scared to muck it up ...and being very care full in what i try..

i need to know how to back it up as well...


bar installing my downloads files..i can use the add ons over 280 and thy will install.but the fire fox i downloaded cant find the setup in the file..so nothing happens..i see them in downloads..all the files but no setup.file that i can hit .to install it..

is there a unbutu user ? and could you please help me?

i cant work out how to install a download file that sits in my system.i cant see a setup exe that i can set of to install the application..i have no idea where to find it ,when i unzipped it to a directory .


this is a strange operating system.and its like being in outer space for me..

i have no idea at all .


i have no idea what its doing on the nett ,cant see what ports ,info its sending out so i unplugged it ..there are a heap of apps but thy need the net.that is a worry.as i have to allow what ever it (thy)install...i have no ruddy fire wall that will install,and the one i did ,douse nothing! i cant see what its doing.nor have a clue..

so i am playing with it NO modem till i can work it out if ever..its certainly nothing like win systems..

i have read pages and pages on there forum.not much help that i can find.

its seems a volunteer base system.and hard for asking users to gets a decent answer..not that friendly..


many kind thank you..
