Very simple. Get DSL embedded (about 50 MB) from:
http:

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/damnsmall/archive/dsl-4.4.9-embedded.zip

Unzip to a new folder adn then double click the dsl-base.bat file and you can run Damn Small Linux within windows. You can also copy it on to a flash / pen drive and run from it.

HTH,

No easy way exists to run Linux program in windows. Use VirtualBox or VMware virtual environment, download Linux OS, install virtual Linux machine and then install your downloaded program in Linux.

RPM package installation (Centos, RedHat, OpenSuse...)
rpm -ivh program_name.rpm

How can i install Linux OS on my laptop? please help


do you want to have Linux while you are also having Windows? Then is will be a dual boot. To do this, have another partition of your hard disk empty. Like C (windows) and Drive E(free partition).
Download the latest version of ubuntu linux and use the bootable cd to install ubuntu on the other partition

How to Install both XP and Linux?


Hi,
I would install XP 1st then Open suse or Ubuntu. When you install either of these linux OS's ensure you install to another partition other than the windows one. Both installation routines will allow you to format the drive to the linux ext2 format and automatically install a boot manager (usually GRUB) which will allow you to select the OS you wish to boot.

What is the difference between linux operating system and windows?


major difference between them are
  1. Reduces the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome
  2. When linux is properly installed, there no longer a need to use the mouse. Chances of you using a mouse is close to zero.
  3. Use the extra cash for rewards
  4. Linux is 100% free while Windows Vista Ultimate costs $398.99 at the time of writing. Companies that pay a licensing annually could have used the money for other things like buying an additional server to reduce the load or even give a bigger bonus to its loyal employees.
  5. Formats are free, freedom is preserved
  6. Linux file formats can be accessed in a variety of ways because they are free. Windows on the other hand makes you lock your own data in secret formats that can only be accessed with tools leased to you at the vendor’s price. “What we will get with Microsoft is a three-year lease on a health record we need to keep for 100 years”
  7. Zero risk in violating license agreements
  8. Linux is open source so you are unlikely to violate any license agreement. All the software is happily yours. With MS Windows you likely already violate all kinds of licenses and you could be pronounced a computer pirate if only a smart lawyer was after you. The worldwide PC software piracy rate for 2004 is at 35%. Which means that 3 out of 10 people are likely to get into real trouble.
  9. Transparent vs Proprietary
  10. MS Windows is based on DOS, Linux is based on UNIX. MS Windows Graphical User Interface (GUI) is based on Microsoft-own marketing-driven specifications. Linux GUI is based on industry-standard network-transparent X-Windows.
  11. Better network, processing capabilities
  12. Linux beats Windows hands down on network features, as a development platform, in data processing capabilities, and as a scientific workstation. MS Windows desktop has a more polished appearance, simple general business applications, and many more games for kids (less intellectual games compared to linux’s).
  13. Customizable
  14. Linux is customizable in a way that Windows is not. For example, NASlite is a version of Linux that runs off a single floppy disk and converts an old computer into a file server. This ultra small edition of Linux is capable of networking, file sharing and being a web server.
  15. Flexibility
  16. Windows must boot from a primary partition. Linux can boot from either a primary partition or a logical partition inside an extended partition. Windows must boot from the first hard disk. Linux can boot from any hard disk in the computer.
  17. Mobility
  18. Windows allows programs to store user information (files and settings) anywhere. This makes it impossibly hard to backup user data files and settings and to switch to a new computer. In contrast, Linux stores all user data in the home directory making it much easier to migrate from an old computer to a new one. If home directories are segregated in their own partition, you can even upgrade from one version of Linux to another without having to migrate user data and settings.
  19. Proven Security
  20. Why isn’t Linux affected by viruses? Simply because its code has been open source for more than a decade, tested by people all around the world, and not by a single development team like in the case of Windows. This leads to a lightning fast finding and fixing for exploitable holes in Linux. So that my friends, proves Linux as having an extremely enhanced security and lesser chances of exploits compared to Windows.

What is filesystem in Linux


Might be Linux. It is widely availble, easy to use and has as much eye candy as vista. On the other hand you need to register for Solaris and I haven't seen any apps that work on Solaris. Linux filesytems include EXT2 EXT3.

What programming language can i use in linux


you can use c,c++ by default no need to install the extra software like in windows ..

LINUX comes with the softwares just like office suite,programming tools,web designing tools,etc and drivers inbuilt in it ...
so once you install the LINUX you will be having almost all the required softwares inbuilt in it including music player,video player,etc

if you want you can install the extra softwares too but the softwares use in windows doesnt work with linux you must download the separate software for linux ....

linux is best in security wise because no virus will attack to LINUX as the viruses are very less developed as there are scarcity in users of linux and there is no chance of hacking the password in linux like in windows this is because of the greater security used in the linux ....

linux stores the password by making use of shadowing .. so upto this time nobody is unable to hack the password ...

What can i do with the Linux


you can do everything what you do with the windows ...

but working with the linux is more complicated than windows ...

any user can use the windows as windows is the user friendly operating system ...

but linux is not so much easy like windows so even the computer experts who are very good in computer with the more knowledge in windows cant work with the LINUX ..

the person who receives the basic training or persist the basic knowledge he only can work with the linux ...

working with LINUX is very different from windows...

so only the LINUX didnt became so much popular like windows as the normal user cant work with it ..

anybody can get the source code of the LINUX and improve it ...
so only it is called as open source as the source code of it is available for free in online ...

thank you
bye
any doubts you can reply me
i am always here to assist you
please rate my solution
