Hey there, I Googled '.chm' and in about 0.04 seconds I was given the answer I needed :D

It's a file format by Microsoft, so that's probably why you're having problems. But I think the program below could help you.

Yes thanks, I did see the websites, only thing is that I am new at Linux, and I am not good at all with all the UNIX commands, I was hoping there was just an easy download and install instead of all those rpm and yum commands.
thanks

What distro are you using?

Using the built-in package manager (ie. Yum in Fedora) is a lot easier than downloading source code. :)

There are several mediocre GUI frontends you could try.

I think at least one should be installed already.
