Hello,
I'm new to Linux. I need additionnal softwares and driver to complete my Fedora 8 installation.
I'm very surprised how to install driver/software on Linux!! :confused: :(

My intel wireless pro 3945 is not recognized but I found a "tgz?"file
I would like to install Skype, Hamachi ... etc which are not listed in the software installer.

My stupid and simple question is:
How to install a software/driver package??
I have tried yum but it's very difficult to use
how shall i put the package to install? I put it in my home.

Is there a simple way to install by a single clic like windows??

thank for help
