Hello. I am brand new to linux. I know NOTHING about it, but im learning. I am trying to install LimeWire basic on Vector Linux 6 on a dell desktop. Would someone walk me thru it please? I am a mac guy and have no idea how to do command lines and such. I need a tutorial for dummies!!! I have the first icon downloaded onto the desktop. Now what?

The links for skype and limewire aren't working.  (at least lead me to a 404 error) what I am missing??

@deftone:  There's a couple of us "mac" guys here....don't worry, it will come to you, just give it a chance.

Limewire and Frostwire are two programs the young people receiving computers through the Reno Cigar Lions Computers for Kids program ask for every month. It's very rewarding to see the 'lights come on' when we show them how to install a package from scratch.

The kids 'get it'.....  8)

I've used Frostwire before and I really liked it. I may give that a shot for my first "package" attempt.  ;D
