Learn the basics of linux.

You don't install stuff from websites on Linux. Use the Package Manager (Software Center).

If you dont know what to do here, or you dont know how to use google in this case then I suggest you save yourself the trouble and stay on Windows.

Just use the Software Center for downloading software and drivers. Browsing Websites for Downloads is for Windows Users.

You need a password to perform admin-level changes to your system. you should have put one in at some point.

You can install things however you want in linux. If it's a .deb you can simply use dpkg -i to install that.

Yes but you shouldn't download random binaries and install them. It's a bad habit that compromises your system security. Much better to use repositories which are (more or less) completely safe.

Right, but when it's from the developer I tend to not worry too much. If any of you jerks posted a binary for me I'd not touch it.

I assume you did this: http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3510690&pagenumber=512&perpage=40#post412263190

So, there was a point where you had to choose your name and password. If you forgot your password (or didn't write it somewhere on piece of paper) it's your problem. Have fun :)

Forget it, steam in a virtual machine doesn't make any sense.

There's plenty of sense about downloading a full OS, creating a VM, trying to install that OS, not managing and asking actual users for help.

For a digital hat.

Humanity utterly puzzles me, sometimes.
