In general you should have rights the read and execute programs from any dos partitions. If not and you are not root you have to ask your superuser to set it.
mount the drive or cdrom you want. Enter the directory and type ls -l
All programms which have a
---------x should be excutable for you.

Try ./programm

To execute a programm enter the directory where the program is with cd /dir and start the programm with ./programm

poster.exe looks like a DOS programm for me since *.exe extension is not used in linux in general. You can^t execute a DOS programm in linux.
