    Hi !!

    .sh means a shell script......
    execute on terminal using 'sh'

    $ sh <package.sh>

    home is your working directory when you open a terminal.so yes type
    sh oOo_2.0.1_he_install_linux_rpm_20060402.sh

    if you have automounted windows partition and if is ntfs..you cannot write with it .for writing into ntfs you need special modules...check this

    if is fat than change umsk permissions in /etc/fsatb
