Try double clicking on it (assuming your using the GHOME Midnight Commander or similar.) If that doesn't work, then you have to use the "dreaded" terminal emulator. In GNOME's "Start Menu," it is under Utilities->GNOME Terminal and has an icon that has the GNOME foot sitting on what looks like a cheap TV (this is in RH 6.2, your experience may vary.) Once in the terminal, you'll probably see a DOS looking thing like this:
[username@... username] _
Your username is (probably) the name of your home directory
It works very similar to DOS, only there is only one drive "/" When 'cd'ing, you can't 'cd..' you have to 'cd ..' note space. For a directory listing, type 'ls'. When executing a local program (say like you're in A: and typing 'setup'), you have to put './' in front, (like './setup', or './install.sh')
Now, I hope you know a little DOS.
