    I just installed Debian based ubuntu last week. Its too difficult for a newbie to understand packaging system, dependencies and all that stuff. I just need to install multimedia codes on a PC which doesn't have internet access. I am trying since last week, still no luck Servlet

    Well, internet access would help - but I'll tell you, the biggest problem is that you really shouldn't run Linux unless you have a reason to run Linux, and if you're not willing to take the step of learning what you're doing, it'll never be worthwhile for you.
  5. Wait a sec, I thought Ubuntu is touted as a Windows alternative.
