    Damn Small Linux

    I am a complete noob to linux, having been using it for about an hour. I installed it on a secondary 2gb hard drive I had, called G: in windows. I wanna know how I can view files from thumbdrives and in (previously in wodws) C:.

    How do I do this?

    You need to mount the file system:

    Drive C: should be /dev/hda1
    hda stands for the first disk and hda1 for the first partition on the first disk

    Thumbdrives should be /dev/sda

    Thankyou, that really helped. Im trying to install a rpm file, but I don't think I have the red hat thingo, coz when I type in man rpm it says it's not installed. What do I do?

    Damn Small Linux is 'debian' based and i suggest you to install .deb packages only.
    you can convert .rpm to .deb format with 'alien'.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
