total newb in need of hlelp
I just bought a book called linux for nongeeks that came with fedora, i have it installed with a dual boot setup with win xp home edition. it is running fine but i cant get some of the things to work,
Plug ins for the mozilla browser
I have downloaded shockwave and flash player for mozilla but every time i click on the icons i get a window that says not action assoicated, i have no clue what that means.
( i really need to get shockwave working more than anything so i can download americas army for linux )
ii cant get this on to install it says i need to x11? so i need to know what x11 is and where i can download it
or someone could attempt to help me with manaul install( tried manual install once, failed miserably)

The file you downloaded was more than likely a TAR.GZ file, correct? You'll need to extract it first, either by right clicking and extracting, or by opening up a console and typing:

tar -zxvf linuxflashinstaller.tar.gz
1. Open up a console
and enter your administrator (root) password.
(replace install-flash-player with whatever the name of your .sh file is)
4. When it asks, type in the directory in which mozilla is installed. (To find this out, open another terminal and type
5. Exit the console
6. Start up Mozilla and try going to a Flash site to see if it installed correctly.
