    I suggest that you install Mandriva Linux 2006. It's very easy to use & so simple.
    For users migrating to Linux , who are new to the Linux OS, Mandriva Linux is the
    best one. I suggest that you also install Windows XP first & install Mandriva Linux.
    Anyway you can access the Windows partitions from Linux. Also you may miss some
    Windows applications that are not available in Linux!! In Ubuntu you need to do some tweaks for it to work properly.

    hmmm... it seems that you are facing a dependency problem. You will face this quite often in Linux. It seems the file libstdc++.so.5 is needed before Realplayer can be installed.

    Search the install disk for this file, install this & then proceed to install Realplayer. If you have an internet connection, you can also search for this file on the net. try searching for 'ubuntu libstdc++.so.5' or something like that. You can also open the synapic utiliy & search for the same.

    Whatever you do, you need to install that file before you can install realplayer.
