some noob questions about linux.
Yesterday I installed suse 9.1 but it seems to be more difficult than I tought.
I want to format my usb stick so it will work with linux, but I have to use fdisk, but whats fdisk, how I use it, where can I find it.
I also want to install flashplayer but I need to type ./flashplayer-installer in command. But it doesn't seem to work.
I downloaded aMSN, but it's in a .bin file, how do I open it with linux?

-just type fdisk in the shell (console)
-check user permissions on the file, so you can execute it chmod 755 flashplayer-installer
- never used that before. try the RPM or the source (.tar.gz).

Do I have to type it in command or somewhere else? I think somewhere else, but where. And it seems that fdisk can make your disk unreadable, and I don't want to screw up my usb stick, so I need to be 100% sure how it works.
BTW, if I format it with fdisk, will it still work under windows?

If fdisk is too hard, use cfdisk..

It sais thet I have to type fdisk /dev in console.
Where is the console (thats prolly something I can find myself)
But than I have to type the name of the device behind the fdisk command, where can I see what name my USB stick has?
AND big question, will my usb stick still work in windows????

go the the start menu and open up a console or so. or press ctrl alt F1 to go textonly ctrl alt f5 (or f7) brings you back to the graphical environment
the stick is prolly /dev/sda. "fdisk /dev/sda"
format it with FAT, readable/writable by both linux and windows
