Dear friends:
I'm really very new into Unix world.
I installed Solaris in one PC.
Now I need to install in my job "olstice X.400 Messaging Server" but I cant find the way to install it.
It is because I dont know about the basic things of Unix, but i need to install this messaging software.
Question 1: What "file type" I need to find to run it?. Question 2: Which method I need to use to run a program?
Question 3: Do you know some website where I can learn about starting into Unix?.
Thank you for your help.

to install any software is very easy.
do u have the this package in your directory.

1. uncompress/untar the package.
then goto the untarred directory.
pkgadd -d .

it will ask u options to install software, check for olstice X.400 Messaging Server and say yes.
