    I am trying to install rarlinux-3.7.1.tar.gz.1 and Nero on my laptop through Ubuntu. HOW DO I DO IT?! I am new to it, and I can't find any god TUT's.

    Thanks

    Did you try searching Google at all? Typing "rarlinux ubuntu" gives some very simple solutions as the first and second result... Basically, install unrar instead. I'll leave it to you to do some reading to find out how to if you don't know how to.

    As for Nero, if you NEED something with all the bells and whistles, try a native linux program like K3B instead, otherwise Gnome has a basic built in CD writer and builder, good enough for burning isos and making basic compilations. Again, I'll leave it to you to find out how, Google and the Ubuntu forums are your friend.

    Ubuntu has both rar and unrar in the repositories (same as debian)

    Debian-multimedia even have rar-2.8.0 needed for subtitles ;)

    Nero would not be my first choice of a burning app on Linux. Gnomebaker would be another alterative. ImgBurn also works very well with Wine and the next release is supposed to support audio cd burning.
