linux question, if i want to install exe applications like msn how do i open the executable, it's telling me open with??
I'm so sorry, I shouldn't be laughing but...

Linux doesn't run .exe files. It's a different operating system. In fact, there is no separate format for executable files in Linux. Anything with execute permissions is allowed to 'run.'
There is no Linux version of MSN Messenger. You'll need to use something like aMSN or Gaim.
lol it's ok if you laugh im still learning, im using Kopete for msn, but i can't get to change the permissions on the files or folders so i can't save anything, do i have to change the permissions on windows to be able to write in them??

What are you trying to save and where? Regular users are pretty much jailed to their ~ directory, this is a good thing.

what filesystem is D:\? Linux write support for NTFS is sketchy at best. How is it mounted? Do you have write permissions on the mount?
well the D: is ntfs and it's mounted on... i dont know what that is :D

i tried compiling with gcc didn't work tried the which command on cc, gcc and c++ they dont even exist :(
