Hello Paul,

I tried these commands and the following shows E: which I assume is a CD

rogern at edgy:~$ apt-get install realplay
E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13 Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you
rogern at edgy:~$ sudo apt-get install realplay
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package realplay

How do I tell what the drive assignments are as there aren't any drive
letters on the Computer-file broswer?

Sorry for the newbie questions coming from Windows.

Have a good weekend!
