    hi dear,

    Who can help me? i have installed for 2 days now Opensuse 11.1. first of all i don't have any experience with Linux.

    i've downloaded a music file and i don't know how to extract the file. it is a Winrar file. who can tell me how to install the winrar or how to exrtract it? how can i install wine?

    2. i have an external harddisk and i have lots of music on it. how can i listen to music on that harddisk, it is a NTFS format.

    3. i have installed before installing linux windows 7 on another partition, i wan too install the xp on that partition again and maybe later windows 7 when it comes out. but at this momen i can not choose which os i want to start, i don't have the choise for dual boot, how can i change the ini file?

    You can install unrar for decompressing rar files.

    install wine(if not already)you can find information here
    Wine - openSUSE
    then download winrar from their website
    WinRAR archiver, a powerful tool to process RAR and ZIP files
    install winrar using wine.
    once done, you can use winrar as you have probably done in xp.
    Sorry, Linux is not my passion .
    Its addiction!!!
