I upgraded my system from windows xp to debian today. I hoped to make my gus server work fast, but linux doesnt seems to be as friendly as I thought.

I need to make a windows ntfs partition work on linux without loosing data on it, and learn to install softwares.

I like the word "upgraded" Wink

When I had the disk space to run linux, I was using a distro that came with the ability to read from NTFS partitions, but not to write (iirc). Dunno where one would get a utility to facilitate that, though.
If you're using a terminal, most linux software is apparently installed with the make command. Most linux software comes with a description of the procedure to use make, which is something like:
Code:
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/freetds
$ make
$ su root
Password: blahblahblahpasswordblahblahblah
$ make install

In debian you use apt-get to install most software. NTFS reading support comes out-of-the-box. If you need to write, you need something like Captive NTFS (which sucks).

I managed to open the ntfs partition. Also using apt-get to install a few things, but had problems installing gusanos. The command didnt work on it, but i found an application called debi installer or something like that. I installed it using this, but i cant open the game Sad

Inderdaad. I use it atm fyi ktnhxbai. Works fine.
Also Cochise: what exactly happens when you try to run the game? And do you mean you downloaded and (tried to) install(ed) this package: http://www.powerhuhn.net/depot/gusanos/gusanos/gusanos09c_xxl.deb ?
