No I didn't, but I have it now.  Thanks a bunch.  I had several hundred ram files from my XP machine and I was wanting to use 
them on Linux.

Well, I have the tarball on my desk.  Now, I have to figure out how to get it installed.  I can't seem to get bin files to 
work.  I opened it into a "bin.tar.gz" file.

Here's what I've done so far:

ragweed at ragweed-den:~$ sudo dpkg -i /home/ragweed/Desktop/RealPlayer11GOLD.bin.tar.gz
[sudo] password for ragweed:
dpkg-deb: `/home/ragweed/Desktop/RealPlayer11GOLD.bin.tar.gz' is not a debian format archive
dpkg: error processing /home/ragweed/Desktop/RealPlayer11GOLD.bin.tar.gz (--install):
  subprocess dpkg-deb --control returned error exit status 2
Errors were encountered while processing:
ragweed at ragweed-den:~$

Does this mean that I can't use it even though it seems to be in a linux format?

Something else, the word "Linux" Is that pronounced, "line'-ex" or is it "lin'-ex"   <grin>
