Transferring a file from Windows XP to RHEL 6.0
First of all I'm new to linux so excuse me if I ask the wrong questions.
I got a .gz file that I download on Windows XP and now would like to transfer it to the new RHEL 6.0 server that I just build.
How do I got about doing that.
Basically, I need to transfer it to linux so that I can install the package to my RHEL server.
Thanks in advance.

usb stick is a possibility.
1) you could use winscp to copy it from windows to rhel
2) or download the file directly in rhel, with -for example- wget <URL>
3) .gz sounds like a gzipped tarball. These usually contain sourcecode.
If so, you would need to compile that source before you can use it.
4) The usual way to get and install software in rhel is yum.
After registering your system with the redhat network (rhn), you can search and install with:#
yum search <WHATEVER> yum install htopYou must always face the curtain with a bow.
