    Help with Open Office Org 2.0


    I have downloaded Open Office Org 2.0 for Linux and want to install it on my desktop that runs mandriva 2005 LE. Now the file that I downloaded is in a tar format (looks similar to WinRAR).

    What I want to do is to burn this file onto a CD-R using Nero, the question here is do I burn this as an image file (eg ISO Image) or just as a normal data file, also do I need to uncompress it from WinRar or tar or just burn the data file as is, i.e drag and drop the tar. image to the burn window in Nero.

    A tar file is similar to a zip or rar file, if you want, you can extract it and burn it, but personally I would just recommend you burn the file as a data disc and untar it using Linux's tools.

    Only iso and other image files need to be "burned as image" in nero. everything else, just burn as a data disc.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
