    I am trying to access windows partition in my kubuntu linux.I can see the icons of two hard disk drives which are my NTFS windows partition i.e hdc1,hdc5. As I am not logged in as "root", I can not view their content. what to do?

    I switched to root temporarily in the konsole and then used the chmod command, I could see the files then in console but even if I change the viewing permission for other users, still I am not able to access files by G.U.I.

    .tar (or .tar.bz2 / .tar.gz ) is Just Like zip Archives.
    Digit Mostly Gives Sources rather than Binaries.. So You Have to Build them Yourself.
    Somtimes it Gives RPMs, They are Used only for Red-Hat Based Distros, (well, you _can_ convert them using " alien " )

    Ubuntu is Debian Based so it Contains apt-get's _Power_..

    so to Install Beep-Media-Player ( Same as XMMS, but Much Better)..
    type " sudo apt-get install beep-media-player "..
    It Downloads it From the Repository and Installs it.. (make Sure You Have Enabled Universe and Multiverse Repos)

    Or Better Install amaroK, its the Best Audio Player in Linux..

    See this: http://easylinux.info/wiki/Ubuntu , It Contains some Basic How-tos..

    Uncomment the universe in /etc/apt/sources files and then go to konsole and type
    apt-get update . Then start using apt

    apt -get install xmms
