Generally, "exe" files are Windows executable, although there's nothing stopping someone from making a Linux file with a name like that. You can use *some* Windows software on Linux through emulators or virtual machines, but it may be painful to use that way. Try giving a specific example of something that you've tried. > 2.

Hmm, I'm always a bit dubious of things from ebay, but try this: On a system that is working, try and browse the disc. You should see something like this in it: Fedora/ 27-May-2007 10:30 - GPL 26-May-2007 02:25 18K RELEASE-NOTES-en_US.html 26-May-2007 02:25 154K RPM-GPG-KEY 27-May-2007 10:40 1.9K RPM-GPG-KEY-beta 27-May-2007 10:40 1.7K RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora 27-May-2007 10:40 1.5K RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-rawhide 27-May-2007 10:40 1.1K RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-test 27-May-2007 10:40 1.1K RPM-GPG-KEY-rawhide 27-May-2007 10:40 1.2K fedora.css 27-May-2007 10:40 2.8K images/ 27-May-2007 10:40 - isolinux/ 27-May-2007 17:22 - repodata/ 27-May-2007 17:22 - stylesheet-images/ 27-May-2007 17:22 - With the "Fedora" directory containing lots of *rpm files. If so, it looks fairly likely that you've got a Fedora disc that might be usable. Of course, if it's a disc that someone else has burnt there's always the chance that they've just dumped the files onto a disc, but without making it bootable, as well. Something like that is still useable, but you'd have to do some more work to be able to boot and install from it. -- [[email protected] ~]$ uname -ipr 22.214.171.124-41.fc7 i686 i386 Using FC 4, 5, 6 & 7, plus CentOS 5.
