    You're going to need to give us more details. What is the exact command you're typing, and what is the exact error message you get?

    [root@localhost thomas]# chmod a+x jre-1_5_0-linux-i586-rpm.bin
    chmod: cannot access `jre-1_5_0-linux-i586-rpm.bin': No such file or directory
    [root@localhost thomas]#

    That's what I get but I know I'm in the right dictory

    Are you sure you're giving it the correct filename? Try using TAB completion. Just type the first few letters of the BIN file and hit TAB twice. The rest of the name should pop up.

    ... and it probably isn't.

    Try typing chmod +x jre and then simply it TAB (it will autocomplete what you want to type).

    Your file is probably called "jre-1_5_0_09-linux-i586.rpm.bin".
