hello, i've just purchased the linux aspire one for my girlfriend, neither of us are particularly computer friendly but for her purposes it is fine. She just uses it for fun, games , internet and chat. ive never used linux before and have no idea how to download. ive read other posts and cant get past the computer jargon. All i want to do is install a version of msn messenger. when ive downloaded it i cant access it through the downloads folder. im a complete beginner at this, someone please help. i cant seem to access the messenger and email service on the system, either. it seems to require an email address but does not accept hotmail. im extremely confused. other than connect to wireless ive as yet not done a thing to the system. am i supposed to? is there anyone that can help my computer frazzled mind.
