what do get after you enter "ls -al"

I mean :
- have you recovered the archive or just a link ?
- is the archive in the current path ?

Sorry, I'm new to english.

recovered for me does mean downloaded.

First of all, have you used the statements found at
http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-linux.html ?

Can you open a terminal and see the file you did download (juste use the command "ls") ?
