I'm terribly lost. 1.Acc to the FAQ's I should double click on the START.htm file, but that brings up the foll error message in my browser: Error 6 (net::ERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND): The file or directory could not be found. 2.The pdf related to problem set 0 refers to a handout that I can't find among the files I've extracted from the course material's .zip file. I've never tried programming b4. I'm using Ubuntu and I've downloaded IDLE. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

    1. The file is gone. You might not have extracted the archive correctly. 2. No idea about this one... look again I guess?

    about the 2nd, I also tried to download that handout, but I didn't find ir either, don't worry about that, I think is not essencial.

    1. Did you move any of the files? HTML can use relative paths to reference other files. Relative paths are paths that go from the current file to the referenced file, instead of starting at the root and traversing to the file like an absolute path would. From your Desktop, to (probably, I don't Ubuntu) go to your Trash, a relative path would just be "Trash". An absolute path would be: /home/you/Desktop/Trash. It would also be possible that Start.htm is a Windows shortcut, which wouldn't work too well in Ubuntu. Is there an index.html in that folder?

    Thank you so much for responding. tyteen4a03: I unzipped to a new folder: same response. Gianko15: I started reading Downey's Think Python. His exercises clarified some issues. rsmith6559: I haven't moved any of the files. You're probably right about it being a Windows shortcut. Yes, there is an index.html file. It takes me to a page similar to the course main page.
